CRaTER -- ar_trend_graph

NAME

ar_trend_graph -- Generate plot of selected housekeeping data

USAGE

     ar_trend_graph [-h] [-t Title] [-v] -p mnemonic file_name

FLAGS

       -h      gets full help message
       -p      mnemonic of housekeeping data (required);
               multiple -p flags allowed
       -t      prefix default title information (s/n & date) with Title
       -T      replace default title information with Title
       -v      makes the output verbose (to STDERR)
       file_name   read data from this file (required)

DESCRIPTION

We read data from a single CRaTER binary packet file, extract the selected mnemonics, and plots these as a function of time. The program generates a Postscript file for printing in parallel with displaying the plot in a separate X-window.

By default the graph title is formed from the first line in the packet file, specifying the time at which data acquisition started.

ENVIRONMENT

    perl5.002     Minimum version of Perl interpreter required
    gnuplot       This script works with version 3.7 and 4.0
    CRATERTOOLS   Environment variable containing path to CRaTER utilities

BUGS

The plot data and the Postscript file are written to the current directory, rather than /tmp.
