Did you look into these files? They should be self-explanatory.

It just shows columns with data that you chose. If you want to read or plot it is up to you.

Any plotting program can plot data structured in columns. I prefer gnuplot. Some people like Grace, others like Matlab, and some spreadsheatoholic use Excel, Gnumeric, ooCalc. That is really up to you.
