Why do you want to use a complicated solution instead of the simple
tool? I could easily make a bash script to do it, but what's the point?
Portability. Ability to run on live systems, cell phones with termux and datamash and R
are not installed, or there is not enough space to install them :)
Hopefully some day I can get a pinephone and install fedora on it and install most of the
great software that does the work easy for us. I can use gnuplot to create the boxplots
for the five number Summary, but a shell script where it is not installed/unavailable
would be nice. Then we can make use of metapost to create the box and whiskers plot.
