# Revision history [back]

I'm afraid I don't know how to test X11 on Windows, but in the meantime I do know how you can get the images Sage is making. When you run the plot command without specifying a filename to save the plot, Sage generates the file in a temporary location which is deleted when you close the Sage session. That temporary location is stored in the variable SAGE_TMP, so you can type

sage: SAGE_TMP


to see the temporary location.

By the way, temporary files are named by the function tmp_filename(), and you can call that function to see where these files are stored. A related command is tmp_dir(), whose output you will see is similar to tmp_filename().

Alternately, you can simply tell Sage to save the plot in some convenient location:

sage: P = plot(f,(x,0,3))
sage: P.save('sageplot.png')
