    I am puzzled by the following discrepancy between a stats command result and the result which I have from normal Gnuplot fitting:

    fit [3e-3:1] f(x) datafile using ($1):($2) via a,b
    stats [3e-3:1] datafile using (log10($1)):($2)

    The Gnuplot fitting gives me y=ax+b, with the correct a=-1.16816 and b=-4.78604
    But the stats-command gives: y = -3.104 x - 4.194

    Not problem with fit or stats, your range setting for stats was
    wrong: you have to logarithmise it as well

    stats [log10(3e-3):log10(1)] $dat using (log10($1)):($2)

    and the linear model that comes out is y = -1.168 x - 4.786


    Thanks a lot!
    kind regards,
