## Value of tics minimum and maximum

### Value of tics minimum and maximum

Hi,

I'm plotting a frequency distribution as an histogramm with the Gauss
curve superimposed. Because I dont' know in advance the lower and upper
bound of my X-axis, I let gnuplot determine the x-range.

The problem is that the superimposed curve starts with the first box and
ends with the last one. See how the curve starts on the left at:
<http://www.ifi.unizh.ch/cgi-bin/dna/Sola/sola?year=1998;stage=4>?

I wonder if there is a way to telle gnuplot to start to plot the
function at the lowest tic value and end at the highest?

Oh, I'm using gnuplot 3.7, if that's important.

Hi,

I'm after an algorithm for calculating the maximum, normal distance
between two curves.

So far I just calculate the distance at a nominal amount of equally
spaced points, say 500, and get the maximum value from there.

Anybody got any better solutions?

Thanks,

Andy
