NAME
     graph - draw a graph

SYNOPSIS
     graph [ -a spacing [start]] [-b] [-c string]  [-g gridstyle]
     [-l label]  [-m connectmode]  [-s]  [  -x [l] lower [  upper
     [spacing]]] [ -y [l] lower [ upper [spacing]]] [-h fraction]
     [-w fraction] [-r fraction] [-u fraction] [-t] ...

DESCRIPTION
     graph with no options takes pairs of numbers from the  stan-
     dard  input as abscissaes and ordinates of a graph.  Succes-
     sive points are connected by straight lines.   The  standard
     output  from  graph  contains plotting instructions suitable
     for input  to  plot(1B)  or  to  the  command  lpr  -g  (see
     lpr(1B)).

     If the coordinates of a point are followed by  a  nonnumeric
     string,  that  string is printed as a label beginning on the
     point. Labels may be surrounded with quotes "...", in  which
     case they may be empty or contain blanks and numbers; labels
     never contain NEWLINE characters.

     A legend indicating grid  range  is  produced  with  a  grid
     unless the -s option is present.

OPTIONS
     Each option is recognized  as  a  separate  argument.  If  a
     specified  lower  limit exceeds the upper limit, the axis is
     reversed.

     -a spacing[ start ]                     Supply    abscissaes
                                             automatically  (they
                                             are missing from the
                                             input);  spacing  is
                                             the spacing (default
                                             1).   start  is  the
                                             starting  point  for
                                             automatic abscissaes
                                             (default 0 or  lower
                                             limit given by -x).

                                             the graph after each
                                             label in the input.



     -c string                               String    is     the
                                             default   label  for
                                             each point.



     -g gridstyle                            Gridstyle   is   the
                                             grid   style:  0  no
                                             grid, 1  frame  with
                                             ticks,  2  full grid
                                             (default).



     -l label                                label is  label  for
                                             graph.



     -m connectmode                          Mode (style) of con-
                                             necting   lines:   0
                                             disconnected, 1 con-
                                             nected    (default).
                                             Some  devices   give
                                             distinguishable line
                                             styles   for   other
                                             small integers.

BUGS
     graph stores all points internally and drops those for which
     there is no room.

     Segments that run out of bounds are dropped, not windowed.

     Logarithmic axes may not be reversed.
