comment PGFPlots: Mathematical expressions
This is a great piece of code. However, I tried out the solution and it works in some cases, but does not work in others. For example, I received an error when typing xmin=1/3. In that case, one would still need to make use of commands like \pgfmathsetmacro.

comment PGFPlots: Mathematical expressions
Your name is very familiar and you're talking as if you wrote pgfplots...and after looking you up, that is precisely who you are. I'm amazed by the work you've done. And yes, please apply the math parser as much as possible. By the way, I was happy to find that Euler's constant e works. Thanks for that.

@ChristianFeuersänger Anyhow, pgfplots is so useful that I am using it, albeit with tons and tons of \pgfmathsetmacro expressions. Hehehe

@ChristianFeuersänger Yes, that works for the domain. However, try to write \begin{semilogyaxis}[xmin=-1, xmax=e^5/3+5,] ... and you'll run into issues! This is likely one of those places where the math parser could stretch its legs a little.

comment PGFPlots: Externalizing Images and pdflatex -shell-escape <filename>
@bene Once Harish solved my gnuplot issues, the externalization issues went away. Problem solved. (I had selected a checkbox during the gnuplot installation that would add gnuplot to the system path.)

comment How can I setup PGFPlots to work with gnuplot?
@HarishKumar Thank you so much, Harish. That solved the problem perfectly! I did not even know about system paths or what it meant, so I wouldn't have been able to solve this without your help. (You've helped me in the past as well, so thank you very much.)
