Plotting Data from Postgres

From: "andrew cooke" <andrew@...>

If PL/R looks too complicated -
http://www.varlena.com/GeneralBits/Tidbits/bernier/art_66/graphingWithR.html
- then from google hits it looks like gnuplot is the best (ie most
popular) option for plotting data in Postgres.

In postgres:
\t (do this only once - it toggles)
\o plot.txt
select count(*), distance from nearest_6_100 group by distance order by
distance;
\o

In gnuplot:
set term dumb 70 24
plot 'plot.txt'

  120 ++--------A---------+----------+---------+---------+--------++

With Separator

From: "andrew cooke" <andrew@...>

Ooops.  That plotted only the first column.

What I wanted was...

In postgres:
\t
\o plot.txt
select distance, count(*) from nearest_6_100 group by distance order by
distance; (note swapped order)
\o

In gnuplot:
set datafile separator '|'
set log x
set xtics (1000,2000,3000,5000,10000)
plot [1000:10000] 'plot.txt'
