PlotDrop is designed for quick and simple visualisation of 2D
data series. It is not intended to encompass anywhere near
the full capabilities of GNUPlot.
PlotDrop is intended to be used in tandem with an external
filesystem browser such as GNOME's nautilus or KDE's konqueror,
whereby data files may be added by dragging them from the
browser to the file list.
Data files should be simple flat data of the kind preferred
by GNUPlot, like
The series of a datafile to plot is set as an integer in the
plot list. To plot more than one series simply add a file
more than once and set a different series number on each
Error bar (+/- y) sizes may be specified in an extra column directly
after every data column.
PlotDrop is tested with GCC 4.4. It requires the following
* GTK+ 2.4 (earlier versions untested)
* libglib (>= 2.16)
* gnuplot (>= 4.0)
Just type "make".
PlotDrop may be run uninstalled from the directory in which
it was compiled. Alternatively, it may be installed systemwide
by issuing the command "make install" with root privileges as
