LET PLOTName:
In most applications, only the first few settings need to be specified, so the CHARACTER, LINE, SPIKE, BAR, and REGION (and associated attribute setting) commands are straightforward to use. However, there are occassions where we would like to be able to change the setting for a high trace number without entering the values for all the lower trace numbers. This command was added to allow you to do that.
where <command> is the desired command; <index> is a number or parameter that specifies the trace id; and <setting> specifies the value being set. The available commands are listed in a NOTE section below. The <index> value should be an integer in the range 1 to 100 (real numbers are rounded to the closest integer). The allowed value for <setting> is dependent on <command>
where <command> is the desired command; <index> is a variable containing one or more trace id's; and <setting> is a list of one or more values. This syntax allows you to set more than one value. This syntax is demonstrated in the Program 3 section below.
