Need to just plot a file with numbers? Stop using matl@b or exc€l.
All we need is a couple lines of Python code:
import matplotlib.pyplot as p p.plot(values) p.show()
And for the values (if you have the number with new-line separating them) with either a file as an argument of just the stdin couple more lines:
import sys stream = sys.stdin if len(sys.argv) > 1: stream = open(sys.argv, 'r') values = [float(line) for line in stream]
