Getting Started With EZL
EZL is a scientific graphing and data plotting application, built to simplify your workload. Our primary goal was to ease the task of routine data plotting and analysis. Loading data into EZL is as simple as dragging–and–dropping or double–clicking your data file. The most commonly used functions are at the front of the interface while the more advanced capabilities, such as live data streaming, take just a few mouse clicks. The main interface, shown below, has 6 primary components:
- ToolsetsThe Toolsets provide a categorized view of the functions available to EZL. Nearly all of the functions contained within the toolsets have accompanying commands which can be issued through the command window.

When EZL is run for the first time, a Quick Start Guide1 is displayed.
1 Uncheck Show on startup, to disable the guide on subsequent runs. It can always be re-enabled from Toolsets→Default Settings→System Settings→ Quickstart Guide. Choose Hide or Show then click Apply & Save; the setting will apply the next time you run EZL.
As shown, the most basic way to plot a file is to simply drag the file onto an empty Plotter. Files can be dragged either from the Directory Browser or directly from your Windows filesystem or desktop. You can drag a single file, or many. EZL will then display a File Setup Dialog, designed to ease the data import process. Typically, just a few clicks are needed.
