Thank you and Dimitri.
Now a question regarding data files in gnuplot vs Octave. I can load in
gnuplot a file 'start.par' with first statement m1 = - 0.001 but I cannot
load a file 'lcdemo.dat' which has 5 column vectors with data but no handles
(if this is the correct expression) for each column. I can plot the data in
the file 'lcdemo.dat' without having to load the data file first and default
is to use 1st col for x and 2nd col for y.
Can I load in gnuplot a vector/matrix with more than 1 element in gnuplot or
would I have to use a statement for each element (e.g. a11 = 1.5, a12 = 2.0
etc.)?
