I've got a value associated to each day, as such:
120530 70.1 120531 69.0 120601 69.2 120602 69.5 # and so on for 200 lines
When plotting this data in gnuplot with lines, the data points are nicely connected. Unfortunately, at places over a week of data points can be missing. Gnuplot draws long lines over these intervals. How can I make gnuplot only connect points on consecutive days?
Solutions that require preprocessing of the data are fine, as I already smooth it with a script.
Here is what I use:
set xdata time set timefmt "%y%m%d" plot "vikt_ma.txt" using 1:2 with lines title "first line", \\ "" using 1:3 with lines title "second line"
