well, you could do it with setting labels...

However, the example below is a bit a cumbersome workaround, but it

seems to do the job in a wxt terminal.

- the first data column is used to define the position

- the second data column gives the label text

- the third data column defines the rotation

The first 3 plot command are not plotting anything but extracting

numbers and text into the variables a,b,c.

Hope this helps...

Maybe there is a more elegant version?

reset

$Data <<EOD

1 one -30

2 two -60

3 three -90

4 four -120

5 five -150

6 six -180

7 seven -210

8 eight -240

9 nine -270

10 ten -300

11 eleven -330

12 twelve -360

set xrange [0:10]

set size square

unset xtics

unset ytics

n = 12. # . for floating point division

set angles degrees

do for [i=1:n] {

plot $Data u 1:(a=$1,0/0) every 1:1:i-2:0:i-1:0 notitle;

plot $Data u 1:(b=stringcolumn(2),0/0) every 1:1:i-2:0:i-1:0 notitle;

plot $Data u 1:(c=$3,0/0) every 1:1:i-1:0:i-1:0 notitle;

set label i center at (5+5*cos(-i/n*360+90)),(5+5*sin(-i/n*360+90))\

sprintf("%s",b) rotate by c font "Arial,20";

}

plot $Data u 1:1 notitle # or whatever else you need to plot
