A.6.12 Example Tables

Provided with TOPCAT are some example tables, which you can access in a number of ways. The simplest thing is to start up TOPCAT with the "-demo" flag on the command line, which will cause the program to start up with a few demonstration tables already loaded in.

You can also load examples in from the Examples menu in the Load Window however. This contains the following options:

Load Example Table
Loads in a single example table.
Browse Demo Data
Pops up a Hierarchy Browser looking at a hierarchy of tables in different formats. This option is designed to show some of the organisational complexity which TOPCAT can handle when browsing tables.

Note these examples are a bit of a mixed bag, and are not all that exemplary in nature. They are just present to allow you to play around with some of TOPCAT's features if you don't have any real data to hand.
