Howdy, all.

I'd like to to plot multi-column data, a line of which might look like, e.g.:

x1 y1 y2 y3 y4 y5 

using Mathematica.  (I might have several tens of columns of data.)

(Yes, I know MultipleListPlot would handle sets like 
{{x1,f1(x1)},{x2,f1(x2},..}} etc, but this requires clumsily defining
several dozen new standalone data arrays.)

How to accomplish this efficiently appears mystically opaque to my untutored 
eyes, or perhaps I'm addled from too much US election coverage.  A Google 
search on this group's archives, MathSource, and the Wolfram site with 
the inoffensive keywords plot multi-column data yielded doodly-squat 
(actually, less than that).

Any suggestions?
Many thanks!
