gnuplot - A picture Says a Thousand Numbers - Harald König

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

gnuplot is indispensable in my UNIX Toolbox for way more than a decade.

gnuplot can do much more than just (nicely) display mathematical functions. Whenever one encounters some numbers that belong together in some way (whether statistics or timing data (e.g from strace;), gas prices, weather data, perhaps even lottery numbers) - a graph shows relationships and developments. And creating these diagrams is super easy with just a few intuitive commands.

The presentation will show various examples, of how to convert numbers in informative and scalable graphics, and how to evaluate data with gnuplot and generate curve fits to equalising functions in seconds.
