i hate myself for writing that post title… the joy of free/libre software should muffle any feeling of annoyance or hatred towards a software, so i apologize in advance. anyways…
i wonder why the following does not work in gnuplot
plot "a.dat" u 1:2 w p, [0:1] 1-sqrt(x)
while the following does
plot [0:1] 1-sqrt(x), "a.dat" u 1:2 w p
why should the order be important?
i m sure it has a perfectly logical explanation… which i have yet to discover!
