       Veusz - a scientific plotting and graphing application.


       veusz [options] [document.vsz]...


       Veusz is a scientific plotting and graphing package. It is designed to create publication-
       ready output in a variety of different output formats. Graphs are built-up combining
       plotting widgets. Veusz has a GUI user interface (started with the "veusz" command), a
       Python module interface and a scripting interface.

       If started without command line arguments, Veusz will open up with a new empty document.
       The program will otherwise open the listed documents.


               Do not check opened scripts for the presence of unsafe Python commands. This
               allows you to create or open complete Python scripts with Veusz commands if they
               come from a trusted source.

               Read Veusz commands from stdin, executing them, then writing the results to
               stdout. This option is intended to replace the veusz_listen standalone program.

               In this mode Veusz does not read any input documents, but will use the first
               argument to the program as the window title, if given.

       --quiet If in listening mode, do not open a window before running commands, but execute
               them quietly.

               Export the next Veusz document file on the command line to the graphics file FILE.
               Supported file types include EPS, PDF, SVG, PNG, BMP, JPG and XPM. The extension
               of the output file is used to determine the output file format. There should be as
               many export options specified as input Veusz documents on the command line.

               Loads the Veusz plugin FILE when starting Veusz. This option provides a per-
               session alternative to adding the plugin in the preferences dialog box.

       --help  Displays the options to the program and exits.

               Displays information about the currently installed version and exits.
