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()

AVAILABILITY
       These routines are available with the  Graphics  software  installation
       option.  Refer to for information on how to install optional software.

DESCRIPTION
       These  subroutines generate graphic output in a relatively device-inde-
       pendent 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 NEWLINE characters.

       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(1G) filters

       -l300          GSI 300 terminal

       -l300s         GSI 300S terminal

       -l450          GSI 450 terminal

       -l4014         Tektronix 4014 terminal

       -lplotaed      AED 512 color graphics terminal

       -lplotbg       BBN bitgraph graphics terminal

       -lplotdumb     Dumb  terminals without cursor addressing or line print-
                      ers

       -lplotgigi     DEC Gigi terminals

       -lplot2648     Hewlett Packard 2648 graphics terminal

       -lplot7221     Hewlett Packard 7221 graphics terminal

       -lplotimagen   Imagen laser printer (default 240 dots-per-inch  resolu-
                      tion).
