       -h, --help
              show this help message and exit

       -R, --rivet-refs
              use Rivet reference data files (default)

              don't use Rivet reference data files

       -o OUTDIR, --outdir=OUTDIR
              write data files into this directory

              write output dat files into a directory hierarchy which matches the analysis paths

              directory which may contain plot header information (in addition to standard  Rivet
              search paths)

              disable  attempting  to  remove 'gap' bins from MC histos when they don't appear in
              the ref file

              ID of reference data set (file path for non-REF data)

              plot with linear scale

              plot with logarithmic scale (default behaviour)

              show vertical error bars on the MC lines

              disable the ratio plot

              show the ratio plots scaled to the ref error

              show the ratio plots with an absolute scale

              don't show the plot title on the plot (useful when the plot description should only
              be given in a caption)

              change plotting style: default|bw|talk

              additional   plot   config  file(s).  Settings  will  be  included  in  the  output

              control if a plot file is  made  if  there  is  only  one  dataset  to  be  plotted
              [default=mc].  If the value is 'no', single plots are always skipped, for 'ref' and
              'mc', the plot will be written only if the single plot is a reference plot or an MC
              plot  respectively,  and 'all' will always create single plot files.  The 'ref' and
              'all' values should be used with great care, as they will also write out plot files
              for  all reference histograms without MC traces: combined with the -R /--rivet-refs
              flag, this is a great way to write out several thousand irrelevant  reference  data

       --show-mc-only, --all
              make  a  plot  file even if there is only one dataset to be plotted and it is an MC
              one. Deprecated and will be removed: use  --show-single  instead,  which  overrides

              Only  write  out  histograms  whose  $path/$name  string matches these regexes. The
              argument may also be a text file.

              Exclude histograms whose $path/$name string matches these regexes

       -q, --quiet
              Suppress normal messages

       -v, --verbose
              Add extra debug messages

       The plot options are described in the make-plots manual in the HISTOGRAM section.
