3.15.3.2 example datafile

This example plots the data in the file "population.dat" and a theoretical curve:

      pop(x) = 103*exp((1965-x)/10)
      set xrange [1960:1990]
      plot 'population.dat', pop(x)

The file "population.dat" might contain:

      # Gnu population in Antarctica since 1965
         1965   103
         1970   55
         1975   34
         1980   24
         1985   10

Binary examples:

      # Selects two float values (second one implicit) with a float value
      # discarded between them for an indefinite length of 1D data.
      plot '<file_name>' binary format="%float%*float" using 1:2 with lines

      # The data file header contains all details necessary for creating
      # coordinates from an EDF file.
      plot '<file_name>' binary filetype=edf with image
      plot '<file_name>.edf' binary filetype=auto with image

      # Selects three unsigned characters for components of a raw RGB image
      # and flips the y-dimension so that typical image orientation (start
      # at top left corner) translates to the Cartesian plane.  Pixel
      # spacing is given and there are two images in the file.  One of them
      # is translated via origin.
      plot '<file_name>' binary array=(512,1024):(1024,512) format='%uchar' \
           dx=2:1 dy=1:2 origin=(0,0):(1024,1024) flipy u 1:2:3 w rgbimage

      # Four separate records in which the coordinates are part of the
      # data file.  The file was created with a endianess different from
      # the system on which gnuplot is running.
      splot '<file_name>' binary record=30:30:29:26 endian=swap u 1:2:3

      # Same input file, but this time we skip the 1st and 3rd records
      splot '<file_name>' binary record=30:26 skip=360:348 endian=swap u 1:2:3
