You will need to clone https://github.com/colin-scott/go-bls and run go install github.com/colin-scott/go-bls. I may have cut off the colin-scott prefix, fwiw.

For NES data, run, go build, and ./bls -series <SERIES> > cs.dat, and gnuplot nes.gpi

For OES data, see data/README, then run gnuplot oes.gpi
