Gnuplot Basic plotting of data files


One of the main useful features of gnuplot is the possibility of plotting data files. Plotting a data file is really simple with gnuplot, actually, once you have opened the software from the terminal, you only need to digit the command plot 'file' to get an automatic plot.

First of all, before plotting, you must be sure to be under the same directory where the data file is, otherwise you'll eventually get a warning.
