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 -barebones 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 -hardcopy No interactive session, just print and quit -hdevice device_name Set default hardcopy device. See xmgrace -version for a list of supported devices. -install 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 -noinstall Don't use private colormap -noprint In batch mode, do not print -nosafe Disable safe mode -nosigcatch 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 Remove data file(s) after read -results file Write results of some data manipulations to file -rvideo 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 -timestamp Add timestamp to plot -version Show the program version, registered devices and build time configuration information. [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 -usage|-help 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.
GRACE_HOME Specifies the directory where the Grace docs and libs are stored. Default is /usr/local/grace GRACE_HELPVIEWER 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 GRACE_EDITOR Specifies the editor which is used to edit sets. Default is xterm -e vi GRACE_PRINT_CMD The print command. GRACE_FFTW_RAM_WISDOM 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: ./pathname:./.grace/pathname:~/.grace/pathname:$GRACE_HOME/pathname 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.
The best way to submit a bug report is using the "Help/Comments" menu entry. Alternatively, see the home page.
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.
