I was looking for the .src file that went with the wage plot on the github GAUSS graphics site. I wanted to make a plot like the one on the right (with different colors for the boxes in the boxplot) AND with character labels on the X-axis. Thanks
This is a modified version of the
plotbox.e example file that comes with GAUSS. It will draw text labels on the X-axis and use a different color for every box.
new; cls; // Simulate some reasonable data temp_september = 4 .* rndn(30, 1) + 80; temp_october = 2 .* rndn(30, 1) + 70; // Declare and fill plotControl structure with defaults struct plotControl myPlot; myPlot = plotGetDefaults("box"); // Set title and axis labels plotSetTitle(&myPlot, "Seattle high temperatures", "Arial", 20); plotSetYLabel(&myPlot, "Degrees (F)", "Arial", 14); plotSetTicLabelFont(&myPlot, "Arial", 14); // Plot each column as a separate group // which will give it a separate color and // legend entry ungroup = 1; plotSetGroupingBehavior(&myPlot, ungroup); // Create string labels for boxes months = "September" $| "October"; // Draw box plot plotBox(myPlot, months, temp_september~temp_october);
