Name
       graph - draw a graph

Syntax
       graph [option...]

Description
       The  command  with  no options takes pairs of numbers from the standard input as abscissas and ordinates of a graph.  Successive points are
       connected by straight lines.  The graph is encoded on the standard output for display by the 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 new lines.

       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.

Options
       -a	   Supplies  abscissas	automatically and uses next two arguments to set spacing and starting point.  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	   Breaks graph after each label in the input.

       -c	   Uses specified string (next argument) as label.

       -g	   Uses specified number (next argument) in setting up grid style:  0 (no grid), 1 (frame with ticks), and 2 (full grid).  Default
		   is 2.

       -h	   Uses specified number (next argument) as fraction of space for height.

       -l	   Uses specified string (next argument) as graph label.

       -m	   Uses specified number (next argument) in setting up line mode:  0 (disconnected) and 1 (connected).	Default is 1.

       -r	   Uses specified number (next argument) as fraction of space to right before plotting.

       -s	   Saves screen (no erase) before plotting.

       -t	   Transposes vertical and horizontal axes.

       -u	   Uses specified number (next argument) as fraction of space to move up before plotting.

       -w	   Uses specified number (next argument) as fraction of space for width.

       -x [ l ]    Determines x axis logarithmically.  Next two arguments after l determine lower and upper  x	limits	respectively.	The  third
		   argument determines grid spacing on x axis.

       -y [ l ]    Same as x but for y axis.

Restrictions
       The command stores all points internally and drops those for which there is not room.

       Segments that run out of bounds are dropped, not windowed.

       Logarithmic axes may not be reversed.

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
