f

#### if else with lines

```Hello

Sorry, I can't find the starting point for a solution to produce a plot
where the y value dependence from the line before and behind the current
line in a data set.

What I want to do is the following.

If y(n-1) < y(n) and y(n+1) < y(n) than y = y+a
If y(n-1) > y(n) and y(n+1) > y(n) than y = y-a
else y = y

Where n is the number of the line in a data set. "a" is a variable. The
y value is in a column of a data set.

And this in a plot command, so that the y value dependence from the y
value in the line before and after the current line in a data set.

Can somebody gives a kick-off to me? I think/hope that I really need
only a starting point for this problem.

You cannot read ahead of the current line, so you'll have to store
the last two values (resp. xy value pairs), and always only plot the
next-to-last one.

Key tool for this ghastly hack is the serial evaluation operator ",".

plot dataf us (lllx=llx,llx=lx,lx=\$1,llly=lly,lly=ly,ly=\$2, llx): \
((llly<lly && ly<lly) ? lly+a:(llly>lly)&&(ly>llyy) ? lly-a : lly)

Haven't tried now. You need to initialise all l* variables with NaN.
Honestly, I wouldn't go for gnuplot to do that. Use your favourite
spreadsheet calculator to transform the original dataset.

Thanks, I have fear this. I always have the data before in a
spreadsheet, so I will do it there.
