Hello Jane,

Try to add some parameters to the "plot" command.
For example "w l" will draw lines insead of points (means "with lines")
and "lt 2" (means "line type" 2) will change color.

So you can replace the original code:

plot '$DAT.clean'" |

with the new one:

plot '$DAT.clean' w l lt 2 " |

Best regards,
