how does it work?
I copied and pasted it into my document in sharelatex.com and I was able to produce a pdf document....haha...Sorry I'm soo new to this, my programming language is very beginner like. \documentclass{article} \usepackage{pgfplots} \usepackage{filecontents} \begin{filecontents}{testdata.dat} 0 1 1.2 0.4 1.5 0.2 1 2 2.3 1.5 2.7 1 2 0.7 1.4 0.5 1.9 0.1 \end{filecontents} \pgfplotsset{ box plot/.style={ /pgfplots/.cd, black, only marks, mark=-, mark size=1em, /pgfplots/error bars/.cd, y dir=plus, y explicit, }, box plot box/.style={ /pgfplots/error bars/draw error bar/.code 2 args={% \draw ##1 -- ++(1em,0pt) |- ##2 -- ++(-1em,0pt) |- ##1 -- cycle; }, /pgfplots/table/.cd, y index=2, y error expr={\thisrowno{3}-\thisrowno{2}}, /pgfplots/box plot }, box plot top whisker/.style={ /pgfplots/error bars/draw error bar/.code 2 args={% \pgfkeysgetvalue{/pgfplots/error bars/error mark}% {\pgfplotserrorbarsmark}% \pgfkeysgetvalue{/pgfplots/error bars/error mark options}% {\pgfplotserrorbarsmarkopts}% \path ##1 -- ##2; }, /pgfplots/table/.cd, y index=4, y error expr={\thisrowno{2}-\thisrowno{4}}, /pgfplots/box plot }, box plot bottom whisker/.style={ /pgfplots/error bars/draw error bar/.code 2 args={% \pgfkeysgetvalue{/pgfplots/error bars/error mark}% {\pgfplotserrorbarsmark}% \pgfkeysgetvalue{/pgfplots/error bars/error mark options}% {\pgfplotserrorbarsmarkopts}% \path ##1 -- ##2; }, /pgfplots/table/.cd, y index=5, y error expr={\thisrowno{3}-\thisrowno{5}}, /pgfplots/box plot }, box plot median/.style={ /pgfplots/box plot } } \begin{document} \begin{tikzpicture} \begin{axis} [enlarge x limits=0.5,xtick=data] \addplot [box plot median] table {testdata.dat}; \addplot [box plot box] table {testdata.dat}; \addplot [box plot top whisker] table {testdata.dat}; \addplot [box plot bottom whisker] table {testdata.dat}; \end{axis} \end{tikzpicture} \end{document}
never tried texing!! ... what do you use to compilte it?
*complie?
No clue honestly. I just log into sharelatex.com and there I copy and past the code. Or I make my own code, very basic codes, to turn in my math homework or statistics homework.
