This is an implementation of gnuplot 3.0. The additions to standard gnuplot are :

The plot/splot commands have an additional field to specify how to extract information from the input lattice. The special filenames Data and Coord refer to the data portion and the coordinate portion of the lattice. For example:

plot "Data"
splot "Coord" with lines
