Dataplot Vol 1 Vol 2

RESET

Name:
    RESET
Type:
    Support Command
Purpose:
    Resets all internal Dataplot parameters, variables, functions, and switches to default sign-on conditions.
Description:
    The RESET command allows the analyst to clear all of Dataplot's internal settings so as to start afresh.

    You can also selectively reset internal settings based on a keyword (see Syntax 2). You can also specifiy names that will not be reset for the DATA, VARIABLES, PARAMETERS, FUNCTIONS, and MATRICES options (see Syntax 3).

Syntax 1:
    RESET
This resets all internal settings. Syntax 2:
    RESET <keyword>
    where <keyword is one of the following:
                ALL - reset all internal settings
                CONTROL - reset the plot control settings
                DATA - reset the data settings
                SUPPORT - resets the support settings
                GRAPHICS - resets the graphics settings
                I/O - resets the I/O settings
                CLSB - resets the CLSB (CHARACTER, LINE, SPIKE, BAR) settings
                LIMITS - resets the LIMITS settings
                VARIABLES - reset variable settings
                PARAMETERS - reset parameter settings
                FUNCTIONS - reset function settings
                MATRICES - reset matrix settings.
Syntax 3:
    RESET NO RESET <name> <ON/OFF>
    where <name> identifies a single name;
    and where ON specifies the name will be added to the list and OFF specifies the name will be removed from the list.

    Dataplot maintains a list of 1 to 30 names that will not be reset by the RESET DATA, RESET VARIABLES, RESET PARAMETERS, RESET FUNCTIONS, and RESET MATRICES commands. You can use this syntax to add or remove names from the list. The ON switch is optional for adding a name. However, the OFF switch is required to delete a name from the list.

Syntax 4:
    RESET COMMAND LINE ARGUMENTS

    This syntax can be used to clear the argument list for macros. Enter HELP MACRO SUBSTITUTION CHARACTER for details.

Examples:
    RESET
    RESET DATA
    RESET LIMITS
