Hi all,

We have data acquisition system which works in Windows. After acquisition,
the data automatically gets plotted (I think so!!) in a software called
Easy Plot.

Easy Plot works well with Windows but, not  in Linux (as Expected!!) .
Opening  it using some Virtual mode also is more cumbersome.

Now the problem is the Data can be viewed or copied only if I open it using
Easy Plot. When I try to open the file using either Note Pad (WIndows) or
using Gedit (Linux), I just get a cluster of symbols!!

The Only way that I follow to manipulate with the data in Linux, as of now,
is as follows:
1. Open the file using EasyPlot in Windows.
2. Copy the Data onto a note pad or Spread sheet and Save(Depending on the
3. Reboot the System now to Ubuntu
4. Open the new datafile and Plot/ Check

Is there any alternative means?
Or is there any means to extract the Data and paste it into a Note atleast?

Easy Plot is a Software produced by Spiral Software. It was designed to
meet the technical graphing needs of the engineers and researchers. (1986)

File Extensions will be either .ep or .epo or .epw (depending on the type
of data)

Thanks in Advance!
