Do you get the following lines?
(you can erase them, they will be recreated).


If you click on the link, it should open okular or acrobat reader or whatever displaying the plot.

Otherwise you can try a different format, PNG for instance:

#+begin_src gnuplot :var data=measurements :file timeseries.png :results inline

Basically, I want to plot a time series graph showing my PSA (prostate
specific antigen) over time. The PSA is measured at irregular intervals,
and has been for over 4 years (and hopefully will continue for many more
years.) That should be a simple enough graph. I've already got a
javascript d3 example that does this, but I'd like to embed it in a
document, and to be able to generate PDF.
This part is relatively straightforward.  Using your data example, you
can do the following:

Thank you for the example, Eric. Running this gives me a page with the

gnuplot-mode 0.7-beta -- determining gnuplot version ......
gnuplot-mode 0.7-beta (gnuplot 5.2) -- report bugs with "C-c C-u"

The colouring bit is harder and I don't know whether it's possible or

to see if anything fits what you are trying to do.
