DESCRIPTION

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

SYNOPSIS

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

OPTIONS

-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.
-viewport xmin ymin xmax ymax
  Set the viewport for the current graph
-wd path
  Set the working directory

RESOURCES

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.

ENVIRONMENT

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.

FILES

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.
