Thanks, that wedsite cleared things up very well. I have another, kind 
of off topic question. I am formating my graph and I've made legends but 
I need to input a new line command and \n isn't working, it actually 
gives me a box character, looks like [], and no new line. Here are my 
commands 'GPRINT:avgN:"Avg %6.2lf%%\n"', is there another way to create 
a new line?
