       gracebat - batch mode - print and exit


       Grace is a WYSIWYG tool to make two-dimensional plots of scientific data.


       grace [ option | filename ]...
       xmgrace [ option | filename ]...
       gracebat [ option | filename ]...


       -autoscale x|y|xy|none
              Set autoscale type

              Turn off all toolbars

       -batch file
              Execute  batch  file on start up (i.e., after all other options have been processed
              and the UI initialized)

       -block file
              Assume the data file is block data

       -bxy x:y:etc.
              Form a set from the current block data set using the current set type from  columns
              given in the argument

       -datehint iso|european|us|days|seconds|nohint
              Set the hint for dates analysis

       -dpipe descriptor
              Read data from descriptor on startup

       -fixed width height
              Set canvas size fixed to width*height

       -free  Use free page layout

       -graph number
              Set the current graph number

       -graphtype xy|chart|fixed|polar|pie
              Set the type of the current graph

              No interactive session, just print and quit

       -hdevice device_name
              Set default hardcopy device. See xmgrace -version for a list of supported devices.

              Install private colormap

       -legend load
              Turn the graph legend on

       -log x|y|xy
              Set the axis scaling of the current graph to logarithmic

       -maxpath length
              Set the maximal drawing path length

       -mono  Run grace in monochrome mode (affects the display only)

       -netcdf file
              Assume  data  file  is  in netCDF format. This option is present only if the netCDF
              support was compiled in

       -netcdfxy X_var Y_var
              If -netcdf was used previously, read from the netCDF file X_var and Y_var variables
              and  create  a set.  If X_var is "null" then load the index of Y to X.  This option
              is present only if the netCDF support was compiled in

       -noask Assume the answer is yes to all requests, if the operation would overwrite a  file,
              grace will do so without prompting

              Don't use private colormap

              In batch mode, do not print

              Disable safe mode

              Don't catch signals

       -npipe file
              Read data from named pipe on startup

       -nxy file
              Assume data file is in X Y1 Y2 Y3 ...  format

       -param file
              Load parameters from file to the current graph

       -pexec string
              Interpret string as a parameter setting

       -pipe  Read data from stdin on startup

       -printfile file
              Save print output to file

              Remove data file(s) after read

       -results file
              Write results of some data manipulations to file

              Exchange the color indices for black and white

       -safe  Run in the safe mode (default)

       -saveall file
              Save all to file

       -seed value
              Integer seed for random number generator

       -settype xy|xydx|...
              Set the type of the next data file

       -source disk|pipe
              Source type of next data file

       -timer delay
              Set allowed time slice for real time inputs to delay ms

              Add timestamp to plot

              Show   the  program  version,  registered  devices  and  build  time  configuration

              [DEBIAN] Direct PDF output has been disabled since the  PDF  library  is  not  free
              software.  There  is  an  easy  workaround  - just use the epstopdf script from the
              tetex-bin package.

       -viewport xmin ymin xmax ymax
              Set the viewport for the current graph

       -wd path
              Set the working directory

       -world xmin ymin xmax ymax
              Set the world coordinates for the current graph

              This message


       When run in the GUI mode, the interface is a subject to X resource settings.
              Please refer to the User's Guide for a list of important ones.


              Specifies the directory where the Grace  docs  and  libs  are  stored.  Default  is

              The shell command to run an HTML viewer for on-line browsing of the help documents.
              Must include at least one instance of "%s" which will be replaced with  the  actual
              URL by Grace. Default is mozilla %s

              Specifies the editor which is used to edit sets. Default is xterm -e vi

              The print command.

              and  GRACE_FFTW_WISDOM_FILE A flag (0 or 1) and a file name which determine whether
              a FFT should use `wisdom' when using the FFTW libraries.


       In many cases, when Grace needs to access a  file  given  with  a  relative  pathname,  it
       searches for the file along the following path:

       The following files are of a special importance:

       gracerc - init file loaded upon start up.

       templates/Default.agr - the default template, loaded whenever a new project is started.

       fonts/FontDataBase - the file responsible for font configuration.

       Grace is derived from ACE/gr (a.k.a Xmgr ) written by Paul J Turner. From  version  number
       4.00,  the  development  was  taken over by a team of volunteers under the coordination of
       Evgeny Stambulchik.
