Re: graph

graph -T ps says something like
error, illegal tick size, ps is not a number.
I realize now I have to do graph-ps
instead of graph -T ps

Do you mean when you try to open it? What are you using to view the
postscript file?

What is the exact invocation you are using? By default (without
specifying a format with -T) graph will produce GNU metafile format
(which is not terribly useful as an end product...). Have you tried the
other output formats? What format are you looking for?
