Mathematica script for direct rotation functions

2 weeks ago I asked if anyone had a mathematica script of filter.math
edited to plot the results of a direct rotation function. Several people
wanted any results I came up with so here you go. Turns out to be pretty
simple if you understand Mathematica scripting language (which I don't). I
still haven't figured out how to get a simple calculation of the mean
plotted as a straight line through the graph. No one volunteered it
presumably because it's real simple. Okay I'll go RTFM if I can just
figure out which of the 100 of so books on Mathematica is going to cover


        (* file  xtalmr/filter.math                                 *)
        (* These are Mathematica instructions to make a plot of the *)
        (* PCs of the refined structures as a function of rotation  *)
        (* function peak index     *)
        (* change line 20 to  PlotRange->{{0, number +2 }, {0., max +0.02 }}, *)
        (* if you want a 0-> max on the y axis *)

                       (* change the name of the file "filter.list" *)
(*===>*) data = ReadList["search.dat",

column4= Transpose[data][[4]];
   AxesLabel->{"Solution Number","Linear Correlation Coefficient"},
   Ticks->{Range[0, number , 50],Range[-0.04, max ,0.01]},
   PlotLabel->"Direct Rotation Function",AxesOrigin->{0,-0.04},PlotJoined->True,

             ["/Times-Roman findfont 13 scalefont setfont"]}];

Fool with this 'Range[-0.04, max ,0.01]' to print (or not) negative values
of the Linear Correlation Coefficient and be sure the x axis doesn't
overlay  values making the peak numbers invisible. Range[0.0, max ,0.01]
and AxisOrigin->{0,0} will plot only the positive values. 

Now, when I can figure out how to plot 3d graphs like DeLano & Brünger did
in their recent Acta Cryst paper  (D51, 744) on this function I'll be
really happy.
