Gnuplot 3D bar graph (How?)

Gnuplot 3D bar graph (How?)

Post by David Chann » Thu, 23 May 1996 04:00:00

        I would like to create a 3D bar graph from x,y,z data.
        Version 3.5 manual states that the box size does not work
        with box size so I get a series of vertical lines when I
        would like them to be 3D boxes. How can this be done with
        gnuplot? - I fear it cannot :-(

        Thanks in advance

        Cheers David

1. Using gnuplot To Simulate Bar Graph

I'm using gnuplot to simulate a bar graph; using the "with boxes" commands
is the closest I've been able to come to it.  If anyone knows a better way,
I'd be interested in hearing about it.  Is there a way to remove the x and y
axis lines that run between the tic marks?  I need to keep the x and y tic
marks but remove the vertical and horizontal lines that join them, they
interfere with the appearance of the bars [boxes]?  I have created an index
(Word format) of the gnuplot manual if anyone is interested; maybe one
already exists but I wasn't able to find it.
