I have to admit that single float value output is too simple.
So I'll fix the default output.
But, I believe that simple form makes sense for
processing by scripts or graph tools like gnuplot.
I'll add the option (may be --simple) to switch
friendliness of outputs.
Tools like automatic graph generator
will be helpful for us. I'll write it after
completion of current work.
I'll send new patch series including help improvement
you told in previous mail later.
