kst — plots scientific data




kst datasource [ -f STARTFRAME ] [ -n NUMFRAMES ] [ -s FRAMESPERSAMPLE [ -a ] ] [ -P
PLOTNAME ] [ -A] [ -d ] [ -l ] [ -b ] [ -x FIELD ] [ -e FIELD ] [ -r RATE ] [ -y

filename [ --landscape | --portrait ] [ --Letter | --A4 ] ]


kst is a graphical data plotting tool, which includes the ability to plot live data
(contiuously update the plot as new data becomes available).

kst may be run entirely from within its GUI, in which case no command line arguments are
needed. kst has a powerful wizard for easily setting up new plots.

In the second invocation, kst loads pre-saved plot specifications from the file kstfile
and optionally may override some of the settings in that file.

In the third invocation, kst displays plots of the data as directed in the default manner.
Additional datasources may be specified on the command line with options for that
datasource following it. Command line options generally apply to all subsequent options
unless later overridden.


-A plot all curves in separate plots

-a average frames (simple mean) when plotting with -s.

--A4 use A4 sized paper for printing. Requires --print.

-b plot as bargraphs.

-d use points when plotting curves.

use FIELD as the magnitude of error bars applied to the next plot.

-F datasource
override the datasource indicated in the kstfile and instead use datasource.

begin plotting at STARTFRAME frames into the data. Set to -1 to start at NUMFRAMES
from the end of the data.

plot FIELD as a histogram.

-l use lines when plotting curves.

use landscape orientation for printing. Requires --print. --Letter use US Letter
sized paper for printing. Requires --print.

plot at most NUMFRAMES frames of data. Set to -1 to indicate all of the data.

plot all plots in the plot named PLOTNAME.

plot FIELD as a power spectrum plot.

--png filename
render to a portable network graphics (png) image with file name filename and quit.

use portrait orientation for printing. Requires --print.

--print filename
print the plot to file filename and quit.

plot every FRAMESPERSAMPLE frames when plotting.

use FIELD as the X-axis vector.

plot FIELD as an XY plot.

plot FIELD as an image.


Plot all data in column 2 from data.dat.
kst data.dat -y 2

Same as above, except only read 20 lines, starting at line 10.
kst data.dat -f 10 -n 20 -y 2

also read col 1. One plot per curve.
kst data.dat -f 10 -n 20 -y 1 -y 2

Read col 1 from data2.dat and col 1 from data.dat
kst data.dat -f 10 -n 20 -y 2 data2.dat -y 1

Same as above, except read 40 lines starting at 30 in data2.dat
kst data.dat -f 10 -n 20 -y 2 data2.dat -f 30 -n 40 -y 1

Specify the X vector and error bars: Plot x = col 1 and Y = col 2 and error flags = col 3
from data.dat
kst data.dat -x 1 -e 3 -y 2

Get the X vector from data1.dat, and the Y vector from data2.dat.
kst data1.dat -x 1 data2.dat -y 1

Placement: Plot column 2 and column 3 in plot P1 and column 4 in plot P2
kst data.dat -P P1 -y 2 -y 3 -P P2 -y 4
