      I am a Ploticus newbie.

      My data file contains this:

      Date C-Total C-Free C-Used C-%%Free D-Total D-Free D-Used
      D-%%Free E-Total E-Free E-Used E-%%Free
      03/29/2008 105858 67858 38000 64.02 114471 7651 106820
      6.83 8613 1840 6773 21.63

      (tab delimited)

      I want to create 3 separate pie charts of free space on disks C, D and
      E, and include the date in the title.

      I've tried:

      pl.exe -prefab pie data=mydata.dat delim=tab echodata=yes header=yes
      values=4 label=2

      any help would be appreciated, thank you

      Bob, with the pie prefab you can only create one pie graph at a time. Perhaps you could create 3 png images and display them together. If you need 3 pies in

        If you need 3 pies in one image you'll need to write a script

          I can have 3 separate images - that's fine.

          if my data file is in this format, can the prefab work?

          Date C-Total C-Free C-Used C-%%Free
          03/29/2008 105858 67858 38000 64.02

          My understanding is that I need to get the data file in this format:

          Date 03/29/2008
          C-Total 105858
          C-Free 67858
          C-Used 38000
          C-%%Free 64.02

          to get the prefab working. Is this correct? Thanks
