GRAPH(1G)																 GRAPH(1G)

NAME
graph - draw a graph SYNOPSIS
graph [ option ] ... DESCRIPTION
Graph with no options takes pairs of numbers from the standard input as abscissas and ordinates of a graph. Successive points are con- nected by straight lines. The graph is encoded on the standard output for display by the plot(1G) 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 contain blanks and numbers; labels never contain newlines. 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 (default 1). A second optional argument is the starting point for automatic abscissas (default 0 or lower limit given by -x). -b Break (disconnect) the graph after each label in the input. -c Character string given by next argument is default label for each point. -g Next argument is grid style, 0 no grid, 1 frame with ticks, 2 full grid (default). -l Next argument is label for graph. -m Next argument is mode (style) of connecting lines: 0 disconnected, 1 connected (default). Some devices give distinguishable line styles for other small integers. -s Save screen, don't erase before plotting. -x [ l ] If l is present, x axis is logarithmic. Next 1 (or 2) arguments are lower (and upper) x limits. Third argument, if present, is grid spacing on x axis. Normally these quantities are determined automatically. -y [ l ] Similarly for y. -h Next argument is fraction of space for height. -w Similarly for width. -r Next argument is fraction of space to move right before plotting. -u Similarly to move up before plotting. -t Transpose horizontal and vertical axes. (Option -x now applies to the vertical axis.) 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 reversed. SEE ALSO
spline(1G), plot(1G) BUGS
Graph stores all points internally and drops those for which there isn't room. Segments that run out of bounds are dropped, not windowed. Logarithmic axes may not be reversed. 7th Edition April 29, 1985 GRAPH(1G)

NAME
graph - draw a graph SYNOPSIS
graph [ -a spacing [start]] [-b] [-c string] [-g gridstyle] [-l label] [-m connectmode] [-s] [ -x [l] lower [ upper [spacing]]] [ -y [l] lower [ upper [spacing]]] [-h fraction] [-w fraction] [-r fraction] [-u fraction] [-t] ... DESCRIPTION
graph with no options takes pairs of numbers from the standard input as abscissaes and ordinates of a graph. Successive points are con- nected by straight lines. The standard output from graph contains plotting instructions suitable for input to plot(1B) or to the command lpr -g (see lpr(1B)). 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 contain blanks and numbers; labels never contain NEWLINE characters. A legend indicating grid range is produced with a grid unless the -s option is present. OPTIONS
Each option is recognized as a separate argument. If a specified lower limit exceeds the upper limit, the axis is reversed. -a spacing[ start ] Supply abscissaes automatically (they are missing from the input); spacing is the spacing (default 1). start is the starting point for automatic abscissaes (default 0 or lower limit given by -x). -b Break (disconnect) the graph after each label in the input. -c string String is the default label for each point. -g gridstyle Gridstyle is the grid style: 0 no grid, 1 frame with ticks, 2 full grid (default). -l label label is label for graph. -m connectmode Mode (style) of connecting lines: 0 disconnected, 1 connected (default). Some devices give distin- guishable line styles for other small integers. -s Save screen, do not erase before plotting. -x [ l ] lower [ upper [ spacing ] ] If l is present, x axis is logarithmic. lower and upper are lower (and upper) x limits. spacing, if present, is grid spacing on x axis. Normally these quantities are determined automatically. -y [ l ] lower [ upper [ spacing ] ] If l is present, y axis is logarithmic. lower and upper are lower (and upper) y limits. spacing, if present, is grid spacing on y axis. Normally these quantities are determined automatically. -h fraction fraction of space for height. -w fraction fraction of space for width. -r fraction fraction of space to move right before plotting. -u fraction fraction of space to move up before plotting. -t Transpose horizontal and vertical axes. Option -x now applies to the vertical axis. ATTRIBUTES
