NAME
plmeshc - Magnitude colored plot surface mesh with contour. SYNOPSIS
plmeshc(x, y, z, nx, ny, opt, clevel, nlevel) DESCRIPTION
Identical to plmesh but with extra functionalities: the surface mesh can be colored accordingly to the current z value being plotted, a contour plot can be drawn at the base XY plane, and a curtain can be drawn between the plotted function border and the base XY plane. Redacted form: plmeshc(x, y, z, opt, clevel) This function is used in example 11. ARGUMENTS
x (PLFLT *, input) Pointer to set of x coordinate values at which the function is evaluated. y (PLFLT *, input) Pointer to set of y coordinate values at which the function is evaluated. z (PLFLT **, input) Pointer to a vectored two-dimensional array with set of function values. nx (PLINT, input) Number of x values at which function is evaluated. ny (PLINT, input) Number of y values at which function is evaluated. opt (PLINT, input) Determines the way in which the surface is represented. To specify more than one option just add the options, e.g. DRAW_LINEXY + MAG_COLOR opt=DRAW_LINEX: Lines are drawn showing z as a function of x for each value of y[j]. opt=DRAW_LINEY: Lines are drawn showing z as a function of y for each value of x[i]. opt=DRAW_LINEXY: Network of lines is drawn connecting points at which function is defined. opt=MAG_COLOR: Each line in the mesh is colored according to the z value being plotted. The color is used from the cur- rent colormap 1. opt=BASE_CONT: A contour plot is drawn at the base XY plane using parameters nlevel and clevel. opt=DRAW_SIDES: draws a curtain between the base XY plane and the borders of the plotted function. clevel (PLFLT *, input) Pointer to the array that defines the contour level spacing. nlevel (PLINT, input) Number of elements in the clevel array.

NAME
plcont - Contour plot SYNOPSIS
plcont(z, nx, ny, kx, lx, ky, ly, clevel, nlevel, pltr, pltr_data) DESCRIPTION
Draws a contour plot of the data in z[nx][ny], using the nlevel contour levels specified by clevel. Only the region of the array from kx to lx and from ky to ly is plotted out. A transformation routine pointed to by pltr with a pointer pltr_data for additional data required by the transformation routine is used to map indices within the array to the world coordinates. See the following discussion of the arguments and the PLplot documentation for more information. Redacted form: [PLEASE UPDATE! ONLY PERL INFO IS LIKELY CORRECT!] F95: plcont(z, kx, lx, ky, ly, clevel, tr?) or plcont(z, kx, lx, ky, ly, clevel, xgrid, ygrid) Java: pls.cont(z, kx, lx, ky, ly, clevel, xgrid, ygrid) Perl/PDL: plcont(z, kx, lx, ky, ly, clevel, pltr, pltr_data) Python: plcont2(z, kx, lx, ky, ly, clevel) This function is used in examples 9,14,16,22. ARGUMENTS
z (PLFLT **, input) Pointer to a vectored two-dimensional array containing data to be contoured. nx, ny (PLINT, input) Physical dimensions of array z. kx, lx (PLINT, input) Range of x indices to consider. ky, ly (PLINT, input) Range of y indices to consider. clevel (PLFLT *, input) Pointer to array specifying levels at which to draw contours. nlevel (PLINT, input) Number of contour levels to draw. pltr (void (*) (PLFLT, PLFLT, PLFLT *, PLFLT *, PLPointer) , input) Pointer to function that defines transformation between indices in array z and the world coordinates (C only). Transformation func- tions are provided in the PLplot library: pltr0(3plplot) for identity mapping, and pltr1(3plplot) and pltr2(3plplot) for arbitrary mappings respectively defined by one- and two-dimensional arrays. In addition, user-supplied routines for the transformation can be used as well. Examples of all of these approaches are given in the PLplot documentation. The transformation function should have the form given by any of pltr0(3plplot), pltr1(3plplot), or pltr2(3plplot). Note that unlike plshades(3plplot) and similar PLplot functions which have a pltr argument, plcont requires that a transformation function be provided in the C interface. Leaving pltr NULL will result in an error. pltr_data (PLPointer, input) Extra parameter to help pass information to pltr0(3plplot), pltr1(3plplot), pltr2(3plplot), or whatever routine that is externally supplied.
