       plot [ -Tterminal ]

       This command is  available  with  the  Graphics  software  installation
       option.  Refer to for information on how to install optional software.

       plot  reads plotting instructions (see plot(5)) from the standard input
       and produces plotting instructions suitable for a  particular  terminal
       on the standard output.

       If  no  terminal  is  specified, the environment variable TERM is used.
       The default terminal is tek.

       Except for ver, the following terminal-types can be used with `lpr  -g'
       see lpr(1)) to produce plotted output:
