CPlot/SPlot -- Plot engineering values versus time


    CPlot [-f] [-h] [-b] [-c] [-l] [-r] [-t] [-z] [file1] ... [filen]


    -f   (fancy) leaves color Postscript plot files [b/w]
    -h   prints full help message
    -b   Bias Currents
    -c   Calibration Amplitude
    -l   LLD Values
    -r   Regulated Voltages
    -t   Temperatures
    -z   Zap time; use SS sequence numbers


As CPlot this shell script invokes browse | rtlm | calcurve on the given binary data file names of, by default, any files in the current directory with a ``.hk'' suffix. The engineering values are computed with calcurve and fed to tsv to generate a tab-separated-value data file. The results are then plotted using gnuplot.

If no flags are given, the -t flag is assumed. If no file names are given, all files with suffix .hk in the current directory are scanned.

As SPlot this shell script bypasses the input pipe and plots from ASCII data files in the rtlm -a format, presumably generated from the SData program.

The Calibration Amplitude, LLD Values, and Regulated Voltages tend to change neither with time nor temperature, the casual user will find little of interest in using these flags; they are provided solely for the sake of completeness.

Mnemonics invoked (see rtlm)

      -b   BiasCurrentD[1-6]
      -c   CalAmp
      -l   LLDThin, LLDThick
      -t   Tanalog, Tdigital, Tpower, Tref, Ttelescope
      -v   V5digital, V5plus, V5neg


Really should allow passing a -v flag


rtlm, calcurve, tsv, c_plot, gnuplot
