PLOT(3X)																  PLOT(3X)

NAME
plot: openpl, erase, label, line, circle, arc, move, cont, point, linemod, space, closepl - graphics interface SYNOPSIS
openpl() erase() label(s) char s[]; line(x1, y1, x2, y2) circle(x, y, r) arc(x, y, x0, y0, x1, y1) move(x, y) cont(x, y) point(x, y) linemod(s) char s[]; space(x0, y0, x1, y1) closepl() DESCRIPTION
These subroutines generate graphic output in a relatively device-independent manner. See plot(5) for a description of their effect. Openpl must be used before any of the others to open the device for writing. Closepl flushes the output. String arguments to label and linemod are null-terminated, and do not contain newlines. Various flavors of these functions exist for different output devices. They are obtained by the following ld(1) options: -lplot device-independent graphics stream on standard output for plot(1) filters -l300 GSI 300 terminal -l300s GSI 300S terminal -l450 GSI 450 terminal -l4013 Tektronix 4013 terminal -l4014 Tektronix 4014 and 4015 terminals with the Enhanced Graphics Module (Use -l4013 for 4014's or 4015's without the Enhanced Graphics Module) -lplotaed AED 512 color graphics terminal -lplotbg BBN bitgraph graphics terminal -lplotdumb Dumb terminals without cursor addressing or line printers -lplot DEC Gigi terminals -lvt0 DEC vt100 terminals -lplot2648 Hewlett Packard 2648 graphics terminal -lplot7221 Hewlett Packard 7221 graphics terminal -lplotimagen Imagen laser printer (default 240 dots-per-inch resolution). On many devices, it is necessary to pause after erase(), otherwise plotting commands are lost. The pause is normally done by the tty driver if at login time, tset found a df field in the termcap(5) entry for the terminal. If a pause is needed but not automatically being generated, add flush(stdout); sleep(1); after each erase(). SEE ALSO

NAME
plot, arc, box, circle, closepl, closevt, cont, erase, label, line, linemod, move, openpl, openvt, point, space - graphics interface SYNOPSIS
cc [ flag ... ] file ... -lplot [ library... ] #include <plot.h> void arc(short x0, short y0, short x1, short y1, short x2, short y2); void box(short x0, short y0, short x1, short y1); void circle(short x, short y, short r); void closepl(); void closevt(); void cont(short x, short y); void erase(); void label(char *s); void line(short x0, short y0, short x1, short y1); void linemod(char *s); void move(short x, short y); void openpl(); void openvt(); void point(short x, short y); void space(short x0, short y0, short x1, short y1); DESCRIPTION
These functions generate graphics output for a set of output devices. The format of the output is dependent upon which link editor option is used when the program is compiled and linked (see Link Editor). The term "current point" refers to the current setting for the x and y coordinates. The arc() function specifies a circular arc. The coordinates (x0, y0) specify the center of the arc. The coordinates (x1, y1) specify the starting point of the arc. The coordinates (x2, y2) specify the end point of the circular arc. The box() function specifies a rectangle with coordinates (x0, y0), (x0, y1), (x1, y0), and (x1, y1). The current point is set to (x1, y1). The circle() function specifies a circle with a center at the coordinates (x, y) and a radius of r. The closevt() and closepl() functions flush the output. The cont() function specifies a line beginning at the current point and ending at the coordinates (x, y). The current point is set to (x, y). The erase() function starts another frame of output. The label() function places the null terminated string s so that the first character falls on the current point. The string is then ter- minated by a NEWLINE character. The line() function draws a line starting at the coordinates (x0, y0) and ending at the coordinates (x1, y1). The current point is set to (x1, y1). The linemod() function specifies the style for drawing future lines. s may contain one of the following: dotted, solid, longdashed, short- dashed, or dotdashed. The move() function sets the current point to the coordinates (x, y). The openpl() or openvt() function must be called to open the device before any other plot functions are called. The point() function plots the point given by the coordinates (x, y). The current point is set to (x, y). The space() function specifies the size of the plotting area. The plot will be reduced or enlarged as necessary to fit the area specified. The coordinates (x0, y0) specify the lower left hand corner of the plotting area. The coordinates (x1, y1) specify the upper right hand corner of the plotting area. Link Editor Various flavors of these functions exist for different output devices. They are obtained by using the following ld(1) options: -lplot device-independent graphics stream on standard output in the format described in plot(4B) -l300 GSI 300 terminal -l300s GSI 300S terminal -l4014 Tektronix 4014 terminal -l450 GSI 450 terminal -lvt0 FILES
