Hi, I'm having a lot of trouble finding a tutorial that would allow me to plot a set of data using octave. Everything seems to be teaching me how to plot functions.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

but say I have a list of data saved in a text file. How do I turn this into an xy scatter? Is this possible using octave?

I can do this easily using other programs, but they do not have built in polar plot functions, so I always have to convert them to cartesian graphs. I know how to plot polar functions in octave, so was hoping that if I learned how to plot datasets I could turn them into polar plots easily.

thanks!
