PL - Plot Document file data into Postscript file

(7/16/96)

PURPOSE

Prepares plot from selected columns of a document file. One column of registers stored in document file may be assigned to the X axis, and one or more different columns to the Y axis of the plot. The Y vs X profiles are plotted within the range of keys specified. A specification of 0 as the column number for X register results in the keys being assigned to the X axis.   Example.

.POSTSCRIPT OUTPUT FILE: CNT001
[Enter name for output file.]

.REGISTER NUMBER(S) PLOTTED ON Y AXIS: 1,2

.REGISTER NUMBER PLOTTED ON X AXIS: 0
[Enter the column number for the register plotted on the X axis. Column number 0 gives a plot of Y register(s) versus their keys.

.INITIAL AND FINAL KEY NUMBERS: 1 44
[Enter key range for registers being plotted.]

Lists bounds on Y axis of plot.

.NEW LOWER, UPPER Y AXIS BOUNDS OR <CR>:
[Can change Y axis bounds. To keep default enter <return>.]

Lists bounds on X axis of plot.

.NEW LOWER, UPPER X AXIS BOUNDS OR <CR>:
[Can change X axis bounds. To keep default enter <return>.]

.NEW AXIS LABEL UNIT AND TICKS / LABEL OR <CR> :
[Can change Y axis label unit or keep default]

Y axis label units listed.

.LABEL NO. TO EDIT. USE 0 FOR LABEL: 1

-1 TO RELIST ALL LABELS, OR <CR> TO CONTINUE: <CR> [Can change X axis label unit or keep default]

.NEW AXIS LABEL UNIT AND TICKS / LABEL OR <CR> :

X axis label units listed.

.LABEL NO. TO EDIT. USE 0 FOR LABEL: 1

-1 TO RELIST ALL LABELS, OR <CR> TO CONTINUE: <CR> [Can change X axis label unit or keep default.]
