graph(1g)graph(1g)Namegraph - draw a graphSyntaxgraph [option...]
The command with no options takes pairs of numbers from the standard
input as abscissas and ordinates of a graph. Successive points are
connected by straight lines. The graph is encoded on the standard out‐
put for display by the filters.
If the coordinates of a point are followed by a nonnumeric string, that
string is printed as a label beginning on the point. Labels may be
surrounded with quotes "...", in which case they may be empty or con‐
tain blanks and numbers; labels never contain new lines.
A legend indicating grid range is produced with a grid unless the -s
option is present.
If a specified lower limit exceeds the upper limit, the axis is
Options-a Supplies abscissas automatically and uses next two argu‐
ments to set spacing and starting point. Spacing is given
by the next argument (default 1). A second optional argu‐
ment is the starting point for automatic abscissas (default
0 or lower limit given by -x).
-b Breaks graph after each label in the input.
-c Uses specified string (next argument) as label.
-g Uses specified number (next argument) in setting up grid
style: 0 (no grid), 1 (frame with ticks), and 2 (full
grid). Default is 2.
-h Uses specified number (next argument) as fraction of space
-l Uses specified string (next argument) as graph label.
-m Uses specified number (next argument) in setting up line
mode: 0 (disconnected) and 1 (connected). Default is 1.
-r Uses specified number (next argument) as fraction of space
to right before plotting.
-s Saves screen (no erase) before plotting.
-t Transposes vertical and horizontal axes.
-u Uses specified number (next argument) as fraction of space
to move up before plotting.
-w Uses specified number (next argument) as fraction of space
-x [ l ] Determines x axis logarithmically. Next two arguments
after l determine lower and upper x limits respectively.
The third argument determines grid spacing on x axis.
-y [ l ] Same as x but for y axis.
The command stores all points internally and drops those for which
there is not room.
Segments that run out of bounds are dropped, not windowed.
Logarithmic axes may not be reversed.
