What do I do with this huge data on my command line interface


I have been trying to get information on how to process the output of a tcl file (aodv and leach protocol using mannasim) which I got on my command line Iinterface. Actually, I don't even know the keywords to search as I am new to this and other minor attempts haven't yielded positive results., I know there is usually a trace file but I can't see any. All I see is on my command line.

I also observe that it took the space on the entire screen and I can't copy the output from the start ( I could only copy from node 19 out of 30 nodes) because of the huge number of output lines.

The last thing I havent been able to figure ou is whether temperature is equivalent to energy Iin mannasim as mannasim has only temperature and carbon dioxide?

If you want to dump the output of a command to a file instead of printing it on the screen, use ">". eg:
ls > file
I can't make heads or tails out of the rest of your post.

Thanks for the response, it was quite beneficial and I was able to get it into a file.

However, please I dont know the most appropriate trace analyzer to use as it seems different from other trace files I have seen. I already attempted to use trace graph.

This is a sample of what I got
The first part looks like this:

* Node 1 = 1 created in (24.69199808532931, 40.81560109779965, 0.0)
* Node 2 = 2 created in (72.50801342190617, 37.513115833286712, 0.0)
* Node 3 = 3 created in (74.934853555138631, 67.811206992627689, 0.0)

The second looks like this:
Node 10 - Temperature Data 18.368035 - Time 0.085450
Common Node 10 - Disseminating data - Time 0.085 - Destination node 0
Node 11 - Temperature Data 26.870198 - Time 0.085450
Common Node 11 - Disseminating data - Time 0.085 - Destination node 0

I am concerned about the best tool plotting the graph of the energy with respect to time.

I;d suggest using awk or perl to get the data into a simple two-column format (first column time and second column energy). Then you can use any number of plotting tools to make a graph. I use pyplot a lot myself, but it requires knowledge of Python. You could also use gnuplot, which is still fairly complex but does not require any real programming.

i am guessing that this is one of the ns2????? versions

What does your textbook have to say on this issue ?

for plotting

should be installed by default
