For many of my plots, I have 20 different lines to plot. I've got a
standard for many aspects of these plots including a standard title for
each line/dataset, line color and line width defined. Rather than having
'x' title "X-data" with lines title 'Xtitle' lt rgb 'purple' lw 3,
'y' title "Y-data" with lines title 'Ytitle' lt rgb 'sea-green' lw 2,
I'd like to do something like:
plot 'x' XDISPLAY, 'y' YDISPLAY
where XDISPLAY would be replaced with "with lines title 'Xtitle' lt
rgb 'purple' lw 3". Likewise for YDISPLAY, etc.
I'm running 4.1 so I have the string functionality but when I try the
above, I get:
gnuplot> plot x XDISPLAY
The plot comes up but its as if gnuplot ignores the contents of XDISPLAY.
Is doing the above possible with the string mechanism?
Is there another/better way to do this?
