  • Horizontal Bar Graphs With Labels in Gnuplot

    I wanted a horizontal bar graph with labels. Gnuplot doesn't like to make such things, but after a while of searching I figured out how to convince it to. Data file:
      # index, age, name

      3       22      rose
      4       20      alice

      unset border
      unset xtics
    
      plot 'demo.dat' using 1:(-1):3 with labels rotate right, \
           'demo.dat' using 1:2 with boxes

    Your actual output depends on a lot more than just how quickly you finish a given programming task. Everything besides the literal coding depends deeply on the way you interact with the organization around you.
