This code plots large amounts of line data quickly by only plotting a subset of the data at any given time.

More info can be found on the README on GitHub:

Thanks for pushing me to update the compile instructions for Linux and Windows. I finally got around to fixing a fairly small bug with endpoints so I wanted to reply to your comment. I think the code is perfectly fine for people to use and multiple people in my lab use it routinely with no problem. I'm updating the image associated with this page to reflect time differences between this library, Matlab, and another library on the FEX (40790-plot-big).

Extremely interesting toolbox with significant plotting speed up for big data!!!

But, the project is actively maintained on GitHub (definitely not here), and it is still too premature for routine, reliable and robust use.

How to compile mex files for Linux and Windows??? Please add more detailed instructions.

@WM My apologies on the delay. You probably already know the answer by now ... but for the record the answer is no.


Hi, I want to know that if your program can plot a lot of discrete points or not?
Thank you very much for your reply.

I just found out that included mex files dynamically link to the openmp library, rather than statically. I hope to update this soon so that everything just works out of the box.
