What it is:

an intelligent command line plotting utility. You give it a text file (or multiple text files) and it gives you plots. It can take a decent handful of plotting flags giving the user the ability to make relatively complicated and customized plots quickly.

Note to the discerning:

Sep 11, 2013:

This is not the most elegant piece of code that was ever written. This was one of the first python projects I ever took on, before I had ever even heard of 'pep8'. It grew like a wet thing in a dark corner. "Rewrite plot code" has been on my to-do list for 6 months, but I haven't done it yet. Why? Two reasons: I'm trying to finish my doctorate, so this isn't a top priority, and frankly, it works. I crack it open all the time and add things that I need (like error bands, axes scaling, hollow points, etc) and I think "this needs to be gutted". Once the university accepts my thesis, then I'll attack this. Well, maybe beer first, then I'll attack this.

May 9, 2014: The time has come to get this code up to snuff. I have returned, christened with my PhD.

requires:

python
numpy
matplotlib

To use:

python clplot.py

for more information call
