P: n/a

You might want to try
or something of the sort.

i saw this post because I'm also trying to figure out
I can't seem to find proper documentation anywhere.
unless its telling me to run "" and analyse the code.
does any1 have any idea where else I could look? A comprehensive

be ideal

Thanks a lot because it works with

But now I have this problem

gnuplotload 'power.p'
gnuplotset terminal postscript enhanced color
gnuplotset output ""
gnuplotset terminal x11
gnuplotset output

line 0: function to plot expected

It plots one time and then I want the program to close the plot window and
do another iteration, then show a plot again, close it, another iteration,
What should I put in the "power.p" code? I've tried to put exit or close
but it doesn't close the plot window.

Thanks and Regards,

I want to do a gnuplot to plot the results.
But I want the program in python to show the result with gnuplot.
I have tried this:


but it gives me this error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "./", line 310, in <module>
File "./", line 289, in main_loop
AttributeError: 'file' object has no attribute 'p'

I don't know gnuplot nor what g.load expects - but probably some lines
above that you have something like this:
power = open(...)
Try with g.load("power.p") instead.
