Just signed up here. I have been wandering about this question for a
while now and thought of asking you folks.
I have a data file with only a single column of say 500 lines. This 500
lines is actually the result of 10 experiments, each of which gives me
50 lines of data.
I would like to tell gnuplot to treat this one file as 10 different sets
of data and not a single big set, i.e it should plot every 50 dataset
and then "replot" over it. (separate colors).
There are two things I have tried so far:
1. Make sure that my program while writing the data, inserts line break
after a data set (i.e. every 50 lines). The problem with this is that
all of them are plotted in the same color
2. In the second scenario, I have written a Python script, which reads
the big data file and creates separate files i.e. 10 files for the
separate data sets. Then I use gnuplot to plot them, manually (ofcourse
I could automate this part by making using of pipes).
Is there a native gnuplot way to do this?
Your opinions are welcome.
