I am very new to gnuplot so I don't know the proper terminology for what I
want to do, but I'm trying to show a movie of my data. We've generated a data
file of positions of particles on a grid. On the mac computer at the lab I use
gnuplot data.ini data.mvi
this takes our data and shows a constantly updating plot that shows our
particles moving - it seems to work like a flip book. I have no problem
getting it to work on the mac. The computer at my office is a windows
computer. I have gnuplot installed on it. When I give the same command as
above on my windows computer, the movie starts, but then I have to hit a key
to advance to the next frame. I can't get it to show them as a continuous
movie. I am using the same data files and .ini and .mvi files that I use on
the mac. Is there a different command I have to use in windows/DOS to get the
movie to run continuously.
My data.ini file contains:
my data.mvi file contains
if (iteration_count>limit_iterations) exit
plot[0:112][0:112] 'fort.20' index iteration_count
where fort.20 is the data file I want to see the movie of.
Thanks for any help - Eric

The root of your problem is that you installed the wrong gnuplot, I
think. This behaviour:

would occur only with the DOS version of gnuplot, but not with the real
