Thanks for looking, I've posted my updated code... so far, I can get a graph image to appear for each line. however I'm not able to pull the data points in to be plotted. the data points are derived from line 2 and 3 of the data file located under __DATA__ all lines follow this output. I modified the output to allow for spaces and trailing zero's to total 2000 data points.
I'm not sure as how to pull into my data set those values. its contrived I know.. like I said before.. its my first attempt. that being said, I'm somewhat impressed that I have made its far... please if I have not included some information, let me know... I will add it if possible.
