746Re: [ploticus] Ploticus Hangs on big numbers
- Feb 6, 2004Hi,
your script had a couple of problems...
be sure that the data field you use with autorange is the one you will be
plotting.. you were doing yautorange=2 but then plotting field 3.
the bigger issue is the way ploticus hangs.. this is caused by the x axis
in plot 2.. where no stub increment is specified. This is a known race
condition bug which will be fixed in the next release, when no stub
increment is specified, or when stubs: none is specified.
Workaround is to specify stubs: inc
or omit the X axis altogether (which seemed like a possiblity in this
It's a good looking graph.
I'll check your follow-up post now.
// here's your script, modified to work:
// Define a plotting area using proc areadef
rectangle: 1 1 6 5
autowidth: .2 3.0 5
// yautorange: datafield=2
// Do the red curve using proc lineplot
// ptlabelfield: 2
axisline: width=2.5 color=green
axisline: width=2.0 color=green
title: Total Flows
rectangle: 6.8 1 7 5
// xautorange: datafield=2
// autowidth: .2 3.0 7
// BUG - race condition when no stub inc is specified, or stubs: none
// #proc xaxis
// grid: no
// tics: no
// labeldetails: align=left
The nature of my data is this: field one is a date and is used only as
a label. Field 2 is always smaller than field 3 and field 4. If I use
field 3 or 4 as my plottable data, it either graphs nothing in the
case of the line plot, or it hangs, in the case of the bar plot. If i
use field 2, they both seem to work fine. Does ploticus have a
problem with big numbers? I am using version 2.20
Is there a work around? I really need to be able to plot field 2, 3,
or 4. This is very important, and fairly urgent.
Thanks for your great product and support.
