That is a nice and useful interface to gnuplot, but i see that 
you set the x range explicitly in your examples.
I would like to enter the command 

to display a plot, say, in the xrange [-3,3] and yrange [-6,6]
(that is in the range needed to get the main pattern of the function,
where relative changes are over a threshold - the first derivative 
could help to assess such range)
and two vertical dotted lines at x=+2 x=-2.

How it that possible using draw2d?

I have loaded your  draw.lisp  in maxima (version 5.10) but it fails o
execute your example command (see below).
Probably i should upgrade my maxima program

thank you for you help


---- enc

(%i8) draw2d(explicit(u^2,u,-3,3))$

  Maxima encountered a Lisp error:

   Error in COND [or a callee]: The function CHECK-GNUPLOT-PROCESS is

   Automatically continuing.
   To reenable the Lisp debugger set *debugger-hook* to nil.
