macricht: Try R (see http://www.r-project.org/. It is mostly a statistics package, but it includes an excellent plot engine and is an implementation of the S language (so it is completely scriptable). I don't know if it can do the curve fits you need, but its output is certainly good enough for professional publication. There is also a great community of R users and developers if you have questions about R or its use.
