The xgraph program draws a graph on an X display given data read from
either data files or from standard input if no files are specified. It
can display up to 64 independent data sets using different colors
and/or line styles for each set. It annotates the graph with a title,
axis labels, grid lines or tick marks, grid labels, and a legend.
There are options to control the appearance of most components of the

The input format is similar to graph(1G) but differs slightly. The
data consists of a number of data sets. Data sets are separated by a
blank line. A new data set is also assumed at the start of each input
file. A data set consists of an ordered list of points of the form
"{directive} X Y". The directive is either "draw" or "move" and can be
omitted. If the directive is "draw", a line will be drawn between the
previous point and the current point (if a line graph is chosen).
Specifying a "move" directive tells xgraph not to draw a line between
the points. If the directive is omitted, "draw" is assumed for all
points in a data set except the first point where "move" is assumed.
The "move" directive is used most often to allow discontinuous data in
a data set. The name of a data set can be specified by enclosing the
name in double quotes on a line by itself in the body of the data set.
The trailing double quote is optional. Overall graphing options for
the graph can be specified in data files by writing lines of the form
