State - A package to keep track of plotting commands
This is a very simple, at present almost trivial, package to keep track of the current set
of plotting commands.
You create a new object by calling the "new" operator
$state = PDL::Graphics::State->new();
Then for each new command you call "add" on this object so that for a call to "line" of
line $x, $y, $opt;
the call to "add" would be like
$state->add(\&line, 'line', [$x, $y], $opt);
which is stored internally as:
[\&line, 'line', [$x, $y], $opt]
The state can later be extracted using "get" which returns the state object which is an
array of anonymous arrays like the one above where the first object is a reference to the
function, the second an anomymous array of arguments to the function and finally an anony-
mous hash with options to the command.
If you know the order in which you inserted commands they can be removed by calling
"remove" with the number in the stack. No further interaction is implmented except "clear"
which clears the stack and "copy" which returns a "deep" copy of the state.
