Detailed Description

a simple class to generate gnuplot-ready plotting commands from a set of datasets.

This class really represents a single graph on which multiple datasets can be plotted.

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

ns3::Gnuplot::Gnuplot ( const std::string &  outputFilename = "",
const std::string &  title = "" 

outputFilename the name of the file where the rendering of the graph will be generated if you feed the command stream output by Gnuplot::GenerateOutput to the gnuplot program.
title title line of the plot page

Member Function Documentation

void ns3::Gnuplot::AddDataset ( const GnuplotDataset dataset  ) 

dataset add a dataset to the graph to be plotted.

void ns3::Gnuplot::AppendExtra ( const std::string &  extra  ) 

extra append extra gnuplot directive for output.

static std::string ns3::Gnuplot::DetectTerminal ( const std::string &  filename  )  [static]

Crude attempt to auto-detect the correct terminal setting by inspecting the filename's extension.

filename output file name

void ns3::Gnuplot::GenerateOutput ( std::ostream &  os  )  const

os the output stream on which the relevant gnuplot commands should be generated. Including output file and terminal headers.

void ns3::Gnuplot::SetExtra ( const std::string &  extra  ) 

extra set extra gnuplot directive for output.

void ns3::Gnuplot::SetLegend ( const std::string &  xLegend,
const std::string &  yLegend 

xLegend the legend for the x horizontal axis
yLegend the legend for the y vertical axis

void ns3::Gnuplot::SetTerminal ( const std::string &  terminal  ) 

terminal terminal setting string for output. The default terminal string is "png"

void ns3::Gnuplot::SetTitle ( const std::string &  title  ) 

title set new plot title string to use for this plot.
