Whenever a directory name is requested for data files, default value files, output files, etc. Gneplot the files can be formatted in a single column or be unformatted lines of data separated by a comma or any number of blanks. Draws the major tick marks along the X-axis. Re-draw non-zoom plot MENU 7.


This is the number of data columns data separated by a comma or at least one blank gwnplot per line of the data file. However, it is assumed that hard-copy devices would be selected in most cases. When the plot has been finished on the screen the program will pause until the user enters a carriage return.

This means that all data in both files will be plotted, unless the data skip option is implemented. Draws an hour-glass-shaped marker at the specified position on the plot.

Whenever a retained segment is made kanual, it is drawn to all selected display devices. If GENPLOT is run from more than one directory above the ile being specified then the directory name will be a multi-directory name pathname.


The terminal type selection in the Start-Up program reflects the available I device drivers. Line number to start reading in 1st file 9.

The current expectation in software, fostered by Macintoy and Windoze applications, is that one should be able to sit down at a new program without reading any manual and be immediately productive. Display device 0 corresponds to the metafile and display device 1 to the screen. Once the user has defined all the line data, the drawing options for the plot must be specified. INIT Initialises all variables and sets default values.

Line number to start reading in 2nd file Gets the selected output device s for hard-copies and makes the relevent Meta-Command-Filo s. After renaming the file, the metafile is re-initialised, re-selected, and all retained segments re-associated with the metafile display device.

Displays a continuation prompt and awaits reply. They arc only applicable to colour terminals and colour plotters. Plot Aspect Ratio 0.

Line number to end reading in 1st file 9. Up to 20 lines can be drawn to a plot.

Column from two files 6 manusl. Eventually, a subset of the commands will become like a second language and the true power and flexibility of this program will be made manifest. Column or Kile vs.

The default is to draw both the major and minor ticks inside the plot box. After any changes are made the run continues by going through the set-drawing-options menu and then creates the genplit plot.


Non-graphics terminals can only genpolt plots to devices supported by a DI driver. However, this flexibility comes at the cost of complexity, and the program is optimized for power at the expense of the novice computer user.

If a very long label exceds the length of the plot the program will reduce the character sizing until the label is small enough to fit inside the plot window. These parameters can be used to plot selected regions of the data file.

It can he very difficult to understand the essential content of the data by inspecting pages of numbers, hence a graphical representation is often required and almost always desired. Get number of columns in data file. A user may make X-Y graphs no pie charts allowed – this is for scientists, not managersplot data and simulation curves, transform the data manuxl various ways, and later spruce up the plots for publication.

If single text lines have been created previously in either a non-zoom or zoom plot then the user has the option of redrawing them.
