Summary: can't read data that uses capital E in scientific
notation and doesn't plot last point in a data file
Platform: RedHat RPMs
AssignedTo: kst at kde.org
ReportedBy: kvm at cfdrc.com
Version: 0.94 (using KDE KDE 3.1.1)
Installed from: RedHat RPMs
I am new to using KST. I noticed that there is a problem when reading
in ascii data. If the data is written in scientific notation with a
capital E (ie. 1E-2) then kst cannot read it. If it comes from stdin
with a capital E, then kst reads it just fine. Here's an example.
I have three data files that should all result in the same plot.
==> test1.dat <==
==> test2.dat <==
==> test3.dat <==
>> kst -x 1 -y 2 test1.dat
works just fine. The plot comes up and looks good.
>> kst -x 1 -y 2 test2.dat
still works just fine.
>> kst -x 1 -y 2 test3.dat
doesn't give anything and kst exits.
However, if I get test3.dat from stdin,
>> cat test3.dat|kst -x 1 -y 2 stdin
then it works just fine.
I am working with some FORTRAN programs that output in the capital E
scientific notation format.
Also, on a side note, kst doesn't seem to plot the last data point in
