Specify a title for a plot saved with the SAVE PLOT command.
This is a temporary title used for identification purposes
only and is not saved with the plot.
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.
The PIXMAP TITLE command applies to the current plot when
the SAVE PLOT command is entered. The order of the plot
command and PIXMAP TITLE command does not matter.
Dataplot maintains a list of saved graphs for the current
session. 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.
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).
PIXMAP TITLE <string>
where <string> specifies the title for the saved plot.
PIXMAP TITLE HISTOGRAM: Y1
SAVE PLOT HIST.1
Unlike the regular TITLE command, the PIXMAP TITLE command does
not persist. That is, it applies only to the next saved plot and
then reverts to the default of using the file name.
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.
