NAME

pltcmap -- Plot a color map in image format.

USAGE

pltcmap cmapimg

DESCRIPTION

This task plots a color map. The map must be in the form of an image, as the output will be used by the scmapc task (among others). The rows in this 256 x 3 image represent the red, green, and blue maps, respectively. The floating point data values are scaled to the range zero to one. The plot shows the displayed intensity for each of the three colors red, green, and blue, versus the element number, representing the relative pixel value in the corresponding displayed image.

PARAMETERS

cmap = "" [file name]
The colormap file image. The rows in this 256 x 3 image represent the red, green, and blue maps, respectively. The floating point data values are scaled to the range zero to one.
(device = "stdgraph") [string]
The graphics device on which to plot.
(fullrange = no) [boolean]
Apply the SAOimage colormap to the full intensity range?

If this is set to "no", then only the entries 1:200 will be used for gray level values. This is useful for ensuring correct rendition of an image dumped directly from the display window, in which only 200 color values are reserved for the image pixel values. The remainder are either overlay graphics colors or reserved for the other windows on the screen.

(prtigi = no) [boolean]
Print the igi command script used to draw the plot?

This is not really very useful, except as an example of igi.

EXAMPLES

1. Say the file bwgam.scm contains the following:


# SAOimage color table
# dev$pix - m51  B  600s
# Wed Feb 26 15:06:25 1992
PSEUDOCOLOR
RED: gamma 1.5
(0.000,0.000)(1.000,1.000)
GREEN: gamma 1.5
(0.000,0.000)(1.000,1.000)
BLUE: gamma 1.5
(0.000,0.000)(1.000,1.000)

It is a color map output from SAOimage of the default gray ramp with an applied gamma of 1.5. The following command could be used to reformat it to an STF image.

pl> scmapc bwgam.scm bwgam.hhh
