I'm learning GNUplot. I need to change steps in which Y values increase while plotting my graph.xrange command will change range but steps. Ex. I have data like this
1 1000
2 1500
3 1
4 200

By default GNUplot is taking Y range as[0,5000] which is OK for me. but y values are increasing in steps of 500, I want to increase in steps of 200. Is it possible?

Use the setting ytics.

set ytics 200

There is also a setting for the smaller tics, which are called minor tics. The corresponding setting is mytics.
