Histogram

Usage:

histogram plotname [-title title string] list of values

This command adds the values to a histogram plot. A record of all data values so far added to the histogram is stored in the file plotname.dat. This allows automatic recalculation of the histogram's bins whenever a data value goes out of bounds. The number of bins is also dynamically controlled by the scale widget on the side.

This can be a time consuming business, so it is recommended that the experiment is suspended before changing the number of bins.

There is also the option of plotting the histogram with logarithmic scales.
