Thank you for making available your plotting package "kst".  We have been evaluating different data plotting packages at EUMETSAT, for the purpose of examining the historical (offline) METEOSAT-8 SEVIRI Instrument Housekeeping data.  The requirement to be able to examine very large quantities of telemetry data (millions of data points) lead me to look at "kst".

I successfully installed "kst" at home, on my SuSE-8.2 Linux "fitted" PC (Athlon-900, 256MByte RAM) and "kst" works very well.

Please, I have a couple questions about inputing data to kst:

1.  I have been unable to get "kst" to ignore the first line of a data file, where the first line consists of text (which identifies the telemetry identities of the various columns).  Is there a way to specify that "kst" ignore this first line of text (or alternatively use the first line as a label)?  (Sample attached).

2.  Is there a "date" format that "kst" will accept ?  I have tried many different dates as input, but I have been unsuccessful to get "kst" to accept an input date value.

Thank you again for making this package available.

Best regards,

Lee Matheson
SEVIRI Instrument Operations Preparation Engineer.
