Another solution for viewing graphics output on the pc is to use ghostview
and ghostscript.  These packages allow you to view and print postscript
files on non-postscript printers.  Best of all, these packages are free!

:    W2H interface to GCG (http://industry.ebi.ac.uk/w2h) uses a free
: software package hp2xx (werntges at convex.rz.uni-duesseldorf.de) to
: convert graphics from HP format (this format can be produced by GCG
: programs) to gif file. You can either use hp2xx separately, or you can
: use W2H to convert your outputs, or you can just extract a WWW interface
: to hp2xx package from W2H and use only that one (actually I have not
: done the latest alternative but it could/should work).
