The patch implements a boxplot mode that generates a standard boxplot directly from a column of data. The basic syntax is

plot 'datafile' using (x-coordinate):datacolumn with boxplot

This generates a box-and-whiskers plot drawn at the x coordinate representing the distribution of values found in the requested column of the input data file. The boxwidth, fill style, and line properties are controlled in the usual way. Details of the boxplot layout are controlled by

set style boxplot {range <r> | fraction <f>}
{{no}outliers} {pointtype <p>}

A full description and sample output from the manual is attached as a pdf file
