The real time serial data plot program available from this page plots Comma Separated Data Values (CSV) coming in over the serial port. Each record consists of single line terminated by a new line.
The program has the following features:
We will be updating the program as time goes on. Please check back for updates. If you wish the program to have additional features please request it using the form below.

We needed to plot data coming in over the serial port from a product that we had developed. We figured this is an easy task and there should be loads of software available on the web to do this.
We spent a fruitless couple of hours searching for a simple, light program that would do it do out of the box. There are plenty of plotting programs there but none would do exactly that. Most of them required installations of weighty libraries. One of them nearly worked but then crashed when we ran it.
We finally gave in and coded this program.
While coding the program we thought of additional features, for example
These are not currently implemented as we did not need them in our application. We will implement these and other features, time permitting, if we receive enough feature requests.
Is there a feature that you would like the program to have? Request it!!!
We are also eager to listen to your comments.
