Right, sorry, I thought I was missing something. In the GUI this is
actually trivial in the sense that you can even sort a time series there
in the "show values" window. But in the CLI of course one doesn't want
to apply "dataset sortby" to a time series!
No, but what about this? (Sorry if I'm missing the point or
repeating what has been said already.)
# show biggest 5 values
Coming back to your original worry about print with the --range
indeed it looks like a bug to me. (I also observe that "print ...
--range=x:y" doesn't honor the x and y values if the option --byobs is
OK, I suppose that should work without --byobs.
