I am not sure why, but all of my attempts to use MultipleListPlot for large data sets (>4000 points) have failed due to the inability to get rid of the points: all plots look like millipedes :( Can anyone help with this? At present I have to use multiple ListPlot's with DisplayFunction->Identity, combined with Show. MultipleListPlot just isn't flexible enough, unless I am missing something. -- I hate this 'orrible computer : from - John Tanner I really ought to sell it : home - john at janacek.demon.co.uk It never does what I want : $$$$ - 100344.3241 at compuserve.com but only what I tell it. : work - john.tanner at gecm.com
