Hi Mina,=0A=
if you select the region USRBIN then you can enter 3 ranges of regions with=
  a variable step. You will see them appearing in flair as=0A=
R1from: xxx R1to:xxx Step1: xxx=0A=
Default for step is 1=0A=
You have to remember that the from:to range has to be in the same order as =
is in the input file.=0A=
You did the right thing to create a plot and try to super impose it on the =
data. However if in the plot appears only one region, gnuplot doesn't reall=
y like it and gives this error message. Please ensure that the plot covers =
at least a couple of regions. In case you cannot succeed please send me the=
  input and the flair project to check.=0A=

Yes, if the step is equal to 1 (default). If the step was for instance 3, t=
only rBeWin and rdUC3Tgt would be considered as bins. You only indicated 4=
regions, but if there were many more, every third region would be considere=
as a bin.=0A=
I see that you are using FLAIR: I have never used FLAIR for region binning,=
I have just tried and I have noticed that it does not allow you to define=
a step "From region X to region Y in steps of Z". In my opinion, this is an=
error in FLAIR, therefore I copy Vasilis Vlachoudis, the FLAIR author, to=
see if he can correct it.=0A=
In the meantime you can still edit the input file yourself: the step for=0A=
the first region set is WHAT(4) of the second line, the step for the second=
is WHAT(5), and the step of the third set is WHAT(6).=0A=
The rest of your mail is strictly related to FLAIR, and in particular to=0A=
Gnuplot, with both of which I am not very familiar. I hope that Vasilis wil=
look into it as well when he is back from vacation (don't forget that in Eu=
most people are on vacation in August).=0A=
