PLOT(VI) 6/4/73 PLOT(VI)
NAME
plot - make a graph
SYNOPSIS
__plot__ [ option ] ...
DESCRIPTION
__Plot__ takes pairs of numbers from the standard input as
abscissas and ordinates of a graph. The graph is plotted on
the storage scope, /dev/vt0.
The following options are recognized, each as a separate
argument.
a Supply abscissas automatically (they are missing from
the input); spacing is given by the next argument, or
is assumed to be 1 if next argument is not a number.
c Place character string given by next argument at each
point.
d Omit connections between points. (Disconnect.)
g__n__ Grid style:
__n__=0, no grid
__n__=1, axes only
__n__=2, complete grid (default).
s Save screen, don't erase before plotting.
x Next 1 (or 2) arguments are lower (and upper) __x__
limits.
y Next 1 (or 2) arguments are lower (and upper) __y__
limits.
Points are connected by straight line segments in the order
they appear in input. If a specified lower limit exceeds
the upper limit, or if the automatic increment is negative,
the graph is plotted upside down. Automatic abscissas begin
with the lower __x__ limit, or with 0 if no limit is specified.
Grid lines and automatically determined limits fall on round
values, however roundness may be subverted by giving an
inappropriately rounded lower limit. Plotting symbols
specified by __c__ are placed so that a small initial letter,
such as + o x, will fall approximately on the plotting
point.
