Hi, Problems plotting in 3 dimensions Apologies, if I'm off target but gnuplotbugs seems to be unusable! System: Slackware 13.1; gnuplot 4.4 I am enclosing a number of scripts which demonstrate one or more problems when working with gnuplot. The *1* examples demonstrate simple examples of drawing single lines in 3 dimensions. The *2* examples demonstrate one or more problems when attempting to draw families of lines. I have tried to make the examples self explanatory. The images created demonstrate the different ways in which incorrect output is produced. I hope you can help resolve these problems. Regards Frank Salter

Sorry, but I have to say that didn't quite work out. There are no explanations whatsoever in those examples. "Produces strange results" doesn't really count as an explanation. > The images created demonstrate the different ways in which incorrect > output is produced. They demonstrate nothing without knowing what you expected to happen instead.

I cannot figure out what it is about your plots that you consider to be a problem. exp_100 and exp_200 appear to produce identical results, although their titles claim that exp_100 "produces expected result" and exp_200 "differs from exp_100". The others ... there is no explanation of what you expect, so it's hard to evaluate whether the plot is or is not conforming to that expectation. For example, exp_211 produces a very nice looking plot although the chosen yrange is 20 times larger than necessary. > I have tried to make the examples self explanatory. > The images created demonstrate the different ways in which incorrect > output is produced. > > I hope you can help resolve these problems.

Hi, Frank I guess that in exp_210, exp_211, command as below causes curiosity. dummy b, u If you leave it alone, b defined as parametric variable should have default range [10:10]. So, iteration [b = 1 : 500 : 1] does not work correctly. Please comment it out and try again. Sicerely, Namio MATUDA > Hi, > reference previous email.

Explicitly resetting a parametric dummy variable inside a plot command could indeed lead to confusion. On the other hand, the plot produced by deleting "dummy b,u" is the same as the plot produced by leaving that command in place while adding "set yrange [0:5]". So another possible confusion is what to expectat from autoscaling a parametric plot. Ethan
