binning (c) 1996-2010 by Markus Hoffmann

       histogram creator

binning is a little program to produce histograms from space separated input data files. Output is a space separated histogram.

SYNOPSIS binning [ options ] filename

USAGE Example of use:

   binning -o output.hist -c 3 input.dat


   If in verbose mode, binning will output some progress information to stdout.  
   This can be completely switched off with the -q option.


   The  data files are ascii files containing records, one record per line, with
   blank separated data.

   Each line contains the content of one bin (or is a comment, starting with '#').

   The columns have the format:

   1 -- value of the bin
   2 -- number of entries

   In a comment line there are also the number of  valid  datapoints,  the  number 
   of overflows and unterflows given.


   By  default,  and  if  no  options are given, binning takes the first column of
   the input file, uses 200 bins and the boundaries are [-0.6:0.6].

   --anfang <value>
          Set starting value for data area.  Default: -0.6

   --ende <value>
          set ending value for data area.  Default: 0.6

   --auto Automatically find data area.  By default, this option is switched off.

   --col <number>, -c <number>
          Use column <number> of the input data file.  The default is column 1.

   -n <number>
          Set the number of bins to create.  The default is 200.

   -h, --help
          print a short help message and exit.

   -o file.dat,--output file.dat
          Place data output to file file.dat.  The default filename is output.dat.

   -q     be more quiet.

   -v     be more verbose.

          show version, program name and other information.


   binning -c 68 plotme.dat --anfang 0.99 --ende 1.001 -n 200 -o hist.dat

   creates a hiostogram with 200 bins out of data found in plotme.dat coulmn 68.
   The data area starts at 0.99 and ends at 1.001. The histogram is saved into
   file hist.dat.
