DATAPLOT Documentation

On-Line Documentation The following on-line files, available in the Dataplot auxiliary directory, are useful:
  • dpnewf.tex - the DATAPLOT news file. Many newer features are only documented here.
  • dpdirf.tex - the command dictionary grouped by category. This can be useful for finding out if DATAPLOT supports a certain capability, but the description is typically limited to a single line.
  • dphe1f.tex - these are the DATAPLOT on-line help files
  • dphe2f.tex
  • dphe3f.tex
  • dphe4f.tex
  • dphe5f.tex
  • dphe6f.tex
  • dphe7f.tex
  • dpsnapsh.pdf - File containing a Quick Reference for Dataplot (PDF format).
I recommend printing the news and directory files for all users (they are standard text files). I don't normally print the help files, but you can if you wish. The Quick Reference (PDF format)can also be viewed and printed.
Hard-Copy Documentation In addition to the above on-line files, electronic versions of the Dataplot Reference Manual and several tutorial documents are also available.
