Oh ye internet geniuses please help me solve this riddle: If I have two ascii files each with 2340 columns and 3254 rows, where I need to multiply the elements and make a graph, how do I do this when Excel only lets me import 256 columns? (I know that a lot of those rows and columns have no data (for example columns: 1-276) but I have to skip them one at a time to open them in excel, and this is very very painful.)
So I have several options at this point:
(a) go about it my painfully tedious way that will take me at least the rest of the afternoon (for this one graph, maybe the first of many)
(b) learn another program that will let me have more than 256 columns at once (but which program?)
(c) query the blog-reading masses, give into the giant coughing fit I just had, and call it a (sick) day
I think I'll go for option (c). So please please provide me with some help.
