2 plotting styles

There are many plotting styles available in gnuplot. They are listed alphabetically below. The commands ‘set style data‘ and ‘set style function‘ change the default plotting style for subsequent ‘plot‘ and ‘splot‘ commands.

You also have the option to specify the plot style explicitly as part of the ‘plot‘ or ‘splot‘ command. If you want to mix plot styles within a single plot, you must specify the plot style for each component.

Example:

     plot 'data' with boxes, sin(x) with lines

Each plot style has its own expected set of data entries in a data file. For example by default the ‘lines‘ style expects either a single column of y values (with implicit x ordering) or a pair of columns with x in the first and y in the second. For more information on how to fine-tune how columns in a file are interpreted as plot data, see using.
