cdck(1) User Contributed Perl Documentation cdck(1)NAME
cdck - simple CD/DVD check program
cdck [-d /dev/devname] [-i] [-t] [-v] [-p] [-o plot-file.dat]
DESCRIPTION -d CD/DVD device name, default is /dev/cdrom
-i Print CD/DVD information and quit, perform no timings (default mode)
-t Perform timing test
-p Save data for gnuplot(1) program
-o specify plot file, ./cdck-plot.dat is the default
-V Print version
-v Verbose operations
To actually plot your data you have to start gnuplot and plot the datafile:
gnuplot> plot "cdck-plot.dat"

MUPLOT(1) User Commands MUPLOT(1)NAME
muplot - plot a multi-curve figure from multiple data by using Gnuplot
muplot [OPTION]... [STYLE] [FILE] [AXES] [FILE] [AXES] ...
Muplot is a simple, non-interactive gnuplot-wrapper to plot a multi-curve figure from multiple data (files). It can produce PostScript,
PDF, PNG or JPEG output file formats.
output version and license message
-h display short help
-V print program version number
-s create PostScript file
-S send PostScript output to STDOUT (the same as '-s -o -')
-n create PNG file
-j create JPEG file
-p create PDF file (requires the gnuplot "pdfcairo" driver)
execute gnuplot command(s) (the default plot style is used)
-m monochrome plot (valid only for PostScript)
-l set plot size to 800x600 (valid for PNG and JPEG)
-o base name of the output file
-q quiet mode (all messages except errors to be suppressed)
-i ignore local command file './.muplotset'
specify an alternative command file instead of './.muplotset'
lp lines and points (default)
pp circle points
e errorbars - default used columns are 1:2:3 (x:y:yerror)
a fields with arrows; The data file has a special format in this case. Use 'prefield' to prepare such data files.
date/time series with the specified format; For example: dt="%H:%M.%S@%H:%M" where the first part, in front of "@", defines the data
format, and the second part defines the format that will be used for tic labels. Here, hours and minutes are separated by `:',
respectively minutes and seconds by `.' Another example could be a date: dt="%Y-%m-%d".
user specified format as defined in Gnuplot
columns in the file defining the x/y-axes of the curve(s); Default are 1:2 or 1:2:3 for data with errors. In case that only one col-
umn is provided the default axes are 0:1 - the x-axis will be a simple index then.
File(s) could be a single file name whereas '-' means <stdin>, many files enclosed in '' or "" like "file1 file2 file3", or any valid shell
pattern as for example "*.dat". The files '$HOME/.muplotset' and './.muplotset', if existing, will be included at the beginning of the gnu-
plot script. The command block between "#BEGIN" and "#END" in those files will be pasted to the end of the script. If you want that the
global '$HOME/.muplotset' is ignored, create in your local directory a file named '.muplotset.noglobal'. In case you want to view the out-
put, define the env variable MUPLOT_VIEWER and export it, for example:
MUPLOT_VIEWER="xpdf -z page"; export MUPLOT_VIEWER
Then the program will prompt you to view the plot, and after confirmation the viewer will present the graphics. If the postscript file for-
mat is chosen ('-s' option), and MUPLOT_VIEWER is not defined, the viewer is preset to 'gv', and per default you are prompted to view the
output. To disable this behavior, set MUPLOT_VIEWER="".
1) On X-terminal view a multi-curve plot of data files with extension 'dat'
muplot l "*.dat"
2) Print a sinus curve in black-and-white color on a PostScript printer
muplot -m -S -c "set title 'Function f(x)=sin(x)'; plot sin(x);" | lpr
3) Plot data from file "example.dat" using columns 1:2, 3:4, and 3:5 as x/y-axes in the multi-curve plot; a PostScript file with the name
"example.ps" is automatically created.
muplot -s lp example.dat 1:2,3:4-5
4) Create graphics in PDF format reading data from file "example.1.dat" (columns 1:2), and from file "example.2.dat" (columns 3:4)
muplot -p lp example.1.dat 1:2 example.2.dat 3:4
5) View data where the third column is a date of the form 'yyyy-mm-dd'
cat example_counts_per_day.dat | muplot dt="%Y-%m-%d" - 3:1
