Graph IDE ► Network Clients ► Command Line Tool†
The following lists some resources available for the command line tool. You may wish to skip the following table on first pass.
|Link||Description Of Resource|
|vvizard.zip||The compressed vvizard unix tool located on your disk within this manual.†|
|vvizard.zip||The compressed vvizard unix tool located at the vvidget.org web site.†|
|Vvidget™ Code Reference Manual||The Vvidget™ Code Reference Manual describes the state information used as input to the server. It also describes the vvizard tool.†|
The following are brief examples of the use of the server built into Graph IDE. Download vvizard.zip (using the links shown above), uncompress the download by double clicking it and then drag the result to a permanent location to install it. For example sake the following assumes you installed vvizard to the ~/Downloads folder. Launch the Terminal application and type the following input.
|Prints a menu of commands to the terminal window (stdout)|
|Makes a line graph with two curves, displays it and then exports it to Graph IDE†|
Because vvizard accepts input from stdin it can be used in shell scripts and other scripting programming environments to make graphs. vvizard is a single unix binary that does not link against non-system frameworks which means you don't need any additional software (not even Graph IDE) to use it, as long as you have access to a graphing server.
Advisory: vvizard is a unix process which acts as a thin client to the server. It is not sandboxed. It injects byte streams into Graph IDE for processing. That means that the Mac App Store edition of Graph IDE can aide in the display of graphs but can not save or open the byte stream translations and for that functionality you need the non-sandboxed Manufacturer edition of Graph IDE.
