NAME

muplot - plot a multi-curve figure from multiple data by using Gnuplot

SYNOPSIS

muplot [OPTION]... [STYLE] [FILE] [AXES]

DESCRIPTION

Muplot is a simple, non-interactive gnuplot-wrapper to plot a multi-curve figure from multiple data. It can produce PostScript, PDF, PNG or JPEG output file formats.

OPTIONS

--help|-H
display help
--version
output version and license message
-h
display short help
-V
print program version number
-s
create PostScript file
-S
send PostScript output to STDOUT (the same as '-s -o -')
-n
create PNG file
-j
create JPEG file
-p
create PDF file (requires the gnuplot "pdfcairo" driver)
-c <cmd>
execute gnuplot command(s) (the default plot style is used)
-m
monochrome plot (valid only for PostScript)
-l
set plot size to 800x600 (valid for PNG and JPEG)
-o
base name of the output file
-q
quiet mode (all messages except errors to be suppressed)
-i
ignore local command file './.muplotset'

Styles:

l
lines
p
points
lp
lines and points (default)
pp
circle points
d
dots
b
boxes
g
grid
e
errorbars - default used columns are 1:2:3 (x:y:yerror)
a
fields with arrows; The data file has a special format in this case. Use 'prefield' to prepare such data files.
dt=<fmt>
date/time series with the specified format; For example: dt="%H:%M.%S@%H:%M" where the first part, in front of "@", defines the data format, and the second part defines the format that will be used for tic labels. Here, hours and minutes are separated by `:', respectively minutes and seconds by `.' Another example could be a date: dt="%Y-%m-%d".
u=<fmt>
user specified format as defined in Gnuplot

Axes:

x:y,x:y-z
columns in the file definig the x/y-axes of the curve(s); Default are 1:2 or 1:2:3 for data with errors. In case that only one column is provided the default axes are 0:1 - the x-axis will be a simple index then.

File(s) could be a single file name whereas '-' means <stdin>, many files enclosed in '' or "" like "file1 file2 file3", or any valid shell pattern as for example "*.dat". The files '$HOME/.muplotset' and './.muplotset', if existing, will be included at the beginning of the gnuplot script. The command block between "#BEGIN" and "#END" in those files will be pasted to the end of the script. If you want that the global '$HOME/.muplotset' is ignored, create in your local directory a file named '.muplotset.noglobal'.

EXAMPLES

1) On X-terminal view a multi-curve plot of data files with extension 'dat'

muplot l "*.dat"

2) Print a sinus curve as a black-and-white PostScript on a PS-printer

muplot -m -S -c "set title 'Funtion f(x)=sin(x)'; plot sin(x);" | lpr

3) Plot data from file "example.dat" using columns 1:2, 3:4, and 3:5 as x/y-axes in the multi-curve plot; a PostScript file with the name "example.ps" is automatically created.

muplot -s lp example.dat 1:2,3:4-5

4) View data where the third column is a date of the form 'yyyy-mm-dd'

cat example_counts_per_day.dat | muplot dt="%Y-%m-%d" - 3:1
