Programs display,displaybubbles , displaycontour,displaytext and show - graphical display of any xy data such as magnetisation etc.

display 1 11 ./results/mcphas.fum
produces a graphical display of the data file mcphas.fum on screen. The display contains an xy plot of column 1 versus column 11 (java has to be installed to use this program). More files may be displayed by commands such as

display 1 2 data1.dat 3 5 data2.dat.

Note that viewing of data which is generated by programs may be viewed online. The program updates the plot every 500 milliseconds. In this way it is possible to watch online, how programs calculate data. The output of display may contain lines to tune the display output, such as

	most general usage: 

 display [-options] xcol[excolerr] ycol[eycolerr][bcolbubble] file [xcol1[] ycol1[] file1 ...]


xcol,ycol ... column to be taken as x-, y- axis  in a lineplot
when using option -o file.jpg the application creates a jpg file on exiting
when using option -xmin 23.3 the application sets the minimum of the display xaxis to 23.3
similar are options -xmax -ymin -ymax ....
when using option -c file.jpg the application only creates a jpg file and exits immediatly
if optional errorcolumns are added then instead of lines symbols and errorbars are shown
if optional bubblecolumns are added then instead of lines bubbles with area corresponding to
bubblecolumn are shown (toggle bubblesize with 's' and 'b')
(toggle lines also with '-' key))
filename ..... filename of datafile
Data files may contain lines to tune the display output, such as
#! displaytitle=My new Graph
#! displayytext=intensity
#! displayxtext=meV

displaybubbles 5 6 8 ./results/mcdisp.qei
works similar as display, however a third column is given and the radius of the symbols varied according to the data in this column.

displaycontour 5 6 8 ./results/mcdisp.dsigma.tot
produces a graphical display of a 3 dimensional dataset as a colour and/or contour plot. Here '5 6 8' denote the x,y and z column in file ./results/mcdisp.dsigma.tot, which should be plotted. Figure 12 shows an sample output of this program. The axes labels may be changed in Tree View $\rightarrow$ xaxis title, etc.

displaytext ./results/mcphas.hkl
monitors the file mcphas.hkl in a text window on screen.
