@ Herbert. Yes now I can see that you have defined your data before \begin{document} and that you are reading from a file.

@ Herbert Thanks but the code is not compiling. See my updated post for the contents of the log file when compilation stops.

@ Herbert Thanks. The problem with using pstScalePoints is that if one wants to display the yvalues in the graph using \listplot[plotstyle=values, rot=90]{\data.dat}, then one does no get the correct values. How to fix this? 1 vote up. – yCalleecharan

comment Using PSTricks to plot from a data file
I chose DJP's answer as it gives the input from an external file as required by the question but otherwise your two codes are pretty much alike and helpful. 1 vote up.

Thanks for this VERY useful information. It is important for users to know if today's codes will work in the future as well. 1 vote up.

comment Is it possible to have back references after each chapter with a single main.bib file?
I think the answer is no. If you have just one main.bib file, then from the example you've provided, in Chapter 2 you will get the page numbers 15 and 20 being back-referenced as well.

Yes this is true. We do not know what operating systems we will have in the future and then our present TeX distributions might not be installable at all. We will have to evolve with whatever the computer world has to offer us. I remember having just a couple of 3.5 inc diskettes several years ago and they sufficed in my undergraduate education. 1 vote up.

Thanks for this useful information. Yes there can always be better algorithms and some commands may be superseded by newer ones also. I am trying to keep my codes as simple as possible and rely on commands that have survived for a long time. 1 vote up.

comment Which plotting tool is more likely to stay stable in the basics: MetaPost, PStricks or pgfplots?
Yes I do that with TeXLive 2008, 2010 and 2011. I created a presentation template with a presentation package but it works only in TL2008 and I never could make it work well with TL2010 and TL2011. And so I keep TL2008 on my machine also. 1vote up.

It might not be an objectively answerable question as you put it, but it is good to know what others think. And yes, no one can say with 100% confidence what will happen in the future. People who has worked with TeX/LaTeX a long time and who is active in the field will surely have more information than I do of what's coming. But even so, I do know that the discussions here do no imply ideas that can be set in stone. It is an open discussion.
