Cycle through the current list of saved plots using
The SAVE PLOT and REPEAT PLOT commands allow you to save and
recall graphs. The primary use of this is to compare the
current graph to previously created graphs.
Dataplot maintains a list of saved graphs for the current
session. The CYCLE PLOT command allows you to cycle through
these saved graphs using the mouse as follows:
- Clicking the left mouse button moves down the current
- Clicking the right mouse button moves up the current
- Clicking the middle mouse button returns control to
The CYCLE PLOT must be preceded by at least one REPEAT
PLOT command (i.e., there must be at least one saved graph
drawn on the screen to cycle through, usually will be
several before entering the CYCLE PLOT command).
Note that the REPEAT PLOT command puts all graphs in the
same window. CYCLE GRAPH allows you to control which of
the restored plots is currently visisble.
These commands are host dependent. They are currently
supported for the following platforms:
- Unix platforms via the X11 device driver;
- Windows 95/98/NT command line version built with the
Microsoft Fortran compiler;
- Dataplot GUI (both Unix and Windows 95/98/NT).

CYCLE GRAPH, CP, and CG are all synonyms for CYCLE PLOT.
The "current list" consists of all plots saved in the
current session and any plots from previous Dataplot
sessions explicitly recalled with the REPEAT PLOT command.
The REPEAT PLOT command is used to display a plot saved
with SAVE PLOT. The LIST PLOT command lists the currently
saved plots (by sequence number, file name, and title).
The CYCLE PLOT command allows you to cycle through the
pixmaps in the current list by clicking mouse buttons.
The PIXMAP TITLE command allows you to specify the title
for a saved plot. This title is simply for ease of
identification in listing the saved plots and is not
saved as part of the plot.
