|Welcome to the FPLOT Home Page|
FPLOT is a plotting program that converts directly from ASCII data to postscript output that is ready to print (or viewable on screen with a tool such as ghostview / ghostscript).
The input data file is simply an ASCII file where the numbers are delimited by spaces, tabs, and/or commas.
There is also an optional command file. This file is also ASCII and this is used to dictate to fplot how you want the plot to look. The syntax of a command file is very similiar to GNUPLOT. There is a link at the bottom of this page to view a sample command file.
Some of the key highlights of FPLOT are as follows:
C source code is included as well as executables for DOS.
FPLOT can be used completely in a pipe. The default output is to stdout and the special filename of '--' will read from stdin. Hence, you can do :
program_that_outputs_ascii_data | fplot -r -t "title" -x "x_label" -y "y_label" -- | lp -dprinter
