      i tried to extend it to 10 categories. The only problem is for legend.
      I changed:

      legend = "min+0.5 max+0.5"

      by:

      legend = "min+0.5 max+1.75"

      but for only 4 categories the legend is too far from the stacks. How
      can i fix it?

      FYI: changes i made can be found here:
      http://mdecore.free.fr/ploticus/pl.with10stacks.txt.

      Regards.
