Hello,

I have an argand plot that i have plotted using the plot() command. Theoretically the plot that i get should be randomly plotted point but the plot that i get has a set of lines running through it. I have used a vector array of points. I want to know is there is away to find out the location indices of the points that constitute the line?

bye

Either specify that you don't want lines between the markers using PLOT or
(depending on what you're trying to do) use the SCATTER function. The
documentation for PLOT will tell you how to specify the line style for the
former.

Sorry i have not been able to explain my problem appropriately. I know how to use different methods of plotting at the moment i am using '.' but the thing is that the dots are all joining up to form lines in the plot there are scattered points as well. I want to investigate y the lines are being formed. I dont know to reverse engineer the problem and go back to the initial values that have been plotted as a result of which the lines have been formed?
