[Kst] plotting a data

Hi Tadele,

Ben's approach is probably what you're looking for, but as you don't give 
much detail as to what you are trying to achieve,
you could also consider the possibility of a plugin, recognising this will 
likely be a larger commitment of time and effort.

Kst is very extensible and with only modest programming skills you can add 
either a plugin (plugins that ship with Kst can be
seen by clicking on the Data... New Plugin... menu item), which allows you 
to manipulate existing vectors and scalars in some way,
or a datasource (which provides data to Kst).

Numerous examples of each can be found in
