CRUTEM3 Time-series plotter

This script (~hadobs/Monitoring.operational/crutem3/user_tools/source/time_series/plot_crutem3_ts.perl) takes the output of the CRUTEM3 time series generator and makes a plot of it. For example, it makes this figure from this time series.

The script takes 7 arguments (all optional):
ArgumentEffectDefault
--xminFirst date shown in the plotunset
Automatically calculated from the data.
--xminLast date shown in the plotunset
Automatically calculated from the data.
--yminSmallest anomaly shown in the plotunset
Automatically calculated from the data.
--yminLargest anomaly shown in the plotunset
Automatically calculated from the data.
--titleTitle string for the plotunset
--termTerminal type for wich the plot is produced (png, eps, etc.) Passed directly to gnuplotunset
(so gnuplot default of x11)
--optionsAny special plotting commands. Passed directly to gnuplotunset

For example, to plot a series as postscript with x tic marks every 25 years use:

plot_crutem3_ts.perl --term='postscript eps color solid' --title="CRUTEM3 Global average" --options="set xtics '1850',7.89e+08" < ts_file > ts_file.eps
