gnuplot - My New Favorite Tool
21 Jul 2018 , tagged: gnuplot, books, CSV
I recently had the need to quickly visualize some data and none of the systems I usually work with had the data. Initially I dumped the data in Google Sheets and created a chart there, but that was slow and didn’t really scale well. The data had to be cleaned, brought into the right format, columns had to be selected and charts created. At this point I faintly recalled reading about gnuplot which, despite its name, has no affiliation with the GNU project.
