NAME

pltpar -- Parameters describing plot attributes.

USAGE

pltpar

DESCRIPTION

Parameters in the gtpar pset specify the attributes of plots drawn with the gtedit task.

Note that this is a pset, not an executable task. Invoking the pset by name runs eparam, enabling the parameters to be interactively edited. Parameters can also be modified on the CL command line by specifying the pset name and parameter name, for example, "gtpar.box = no"). The pset name will also appear as one of the task parameters in the gtedit task; to change values in the pset, position the cursor to the gtpar pset name and type ":e" to invoke eparam.

PARAMETERS

(wx= 0) [real]
Left world X-coordinate (if autoscaling is not used).
(wx= 0.) [real]
Right world X-coordinate (if autoscaling is not used).
(wy= 0.) [real]
Lower world Y-coordinate (if no autoscaling is used).
(wy= 0.) [real]
Upper world Y-coord (if not autoscaling).
(marker = box) [string, allowed values: point | box | plus |
cross | circle | diamond | hline | vline | hebar | vebar]

The name of the style of marker plotted at each point if pointmode=yes.

(szmarker = 0.005) [real]
The size of the markers if pointmode = yes. If this parameter is greater than 0, its value represents the marker size in world coordinates (WC). If it is less than zero, the absolute value will be used, representing size in normalized device coordinates (NDC). If it is set to exactly zero, and the input is from a list file, then the third column in the input data is used as the marker size.
(logx = no) [boolean]
Scale the X axis logarithmically?
(logy = no) [boolean]
Scale the Y axis logarithmically?
(box = yes) [boolean]
Draw the box containing the axes and labels around periphery of the window?
(ticklabels = yes) [boolean]
Label major tick marks?
(grid = no) [boolean]
Draw grid lines on plot?
(xlabel) [string]
X-axis label.
(ylabel) [string]
Y-axis label.
(title = imtitle)
The plot title consists of a standard system-supplied string containing the user's name, date, etc. If the title parameter contains the string "imtitle" (the default), then the plot title will contain a second line made up from the input file or table name. Otherwise, the title will contain the string value.
(vx= 0.) [real, min = 0, max = 1]
Left limit of device viewport.
(vx= 0.) [real, min = 0, max = 1]
Right limit of device viewport.
(vy= 0.) [real, min = 0, max = 1]
Bottom limit of device viewport.
(vy= 0.) [real], min = 0, max = 1]
Upper limit of device viewport.
(majrx = 5) [integer]
Number of major divisions along the X grid.
(minrx = 5) [integer]
Number of minor divisions along the X grid.
(majry = 5) [integer]
Number of major divisions along the Y grid.
(minry = 5) [integer]
Number of minor divisions along the Y grid.
(round = no) [boolean]
Round axes to nice values?
(fill = yes) [boolean]
Fill the viewport rather than enforcing unity aspect ratio?
