## Homework Statement

Hi,

I need to create a histogram in Latex.

I know how to do this,

however,

I only know how to do it if I have a limited number of points so I want it so that I can get a

computer program to generate a list of numbers and save them to a file and then I can import this to Latex and use it this way in the Histogram.

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

**\documentclass{article}**

\usepackage{pst-plot}

\savedata{\data}[{{0.5,1},{1,7},{1.5,1},{2,3},{2.5,1},{3,2},{3.5,1}}]

\begin{document}

\psset{xunit = 2}

\begin{pspicture}(-0.23,-0.53)(4,7.5)

\listplot[

plotstyle = bar,

barwidth = 0.8,

linecolor = red,

fillstyle = solid,

fillcolor = blue!70

]{\data}

\psaxes[

Dx = 0.5,

xticksize = -4pt 0

]{->}(4,7.5)

\end{pspicture}

\end{document}

This is what I am currently using to generate the histogram.

I have a computer program that stores the frequency in which a certain number occurs.

So, if my range in my program was from -10 to 10 it would tell me how many times in this range each number occurred for a certain number of n trials.

How should I get my program to output this data to a file so that I can use it in this histogram?

Thanks
