I would like to highlight the min/max value in pairs of values on each row in a table with pgfplotstable.
I had a look at Highlighting Extremal Values in Table which seems to provide much of the machinery needed.
I am quite new to pgfplotstable, is there a better way to do this than reading the two columns to be compared to a new macro, transpose and sort on one column (the original row) and then repeat for all rows? (for each pair of values). With better I mean easier (for me) and/or more efficient.
I have many rows (150 in my test case) and typically three pairs for each row that I would like to compare.
Comparing values for each row would be easy in the script emitting the csv data, so I gathered I might be missing something important -- hence the question.
