tar of test + data
Description of problem:
There seems to be a problem with the command parser in the F14 gnuplot version (gnuplot-4.4.0-5.fc14.i686), which is not present in earlier or later versions
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. drop the attached file into a working directory and untar it: one script and two data files
2. from a terminal on the desktop, enter gnuplot
3. enter load "plot"
Terminal responds with an error, and only one of the two shapes is drawn:
gnuplot> load "test"
gnuplot> splot "p0" with points 2 , "p1" with points 3
"test", line 7: ';' expected
Two shapes should be drawn into the 3d drawing space
The gnuplot code was originally written on an old FC install. It also works on F15, so I suspect that it's just the ".0" package that's broken.
I am looking into this, and I see that this test doesn't work on F16 and later (gnuplot 4.4 and 4.6).
What should the numbers 2 and 3 represents? According to the official documentation  page 90, you are missing the keyword before that numbers..
I see what you mean. iirc, the numbers represent the point types. I'd guess that if the manual's been like this for some time, then I misread it and it worked despite my bad code.
If I insert the pt, it seems ok. I cannot even find a copy of the manual that supports my code, so it must be my mistake.
Thanks Tim. I am closing this as NOTABUG.
