Notify Dataplot that the GUI is running.
If Dataplot is running in the Graphical User Interface (GUI) mode, a
few operations are not allowed. The most important of these is
that reading from the terminal is not allowed (READ with no file
name, PAUSE command). This command is issued by the Tcl/Tk scripts
(the GUI is currently implemented using the Tcl/TK scripting
language) and is not typically entered directly by the Dataplot
If you set this switch to ON while running the command line
version, Dataplot will continue to run. However, a few specific
commands will not work as expected. If you set this switch to
OFF while the GUI is running, the GUI will hang if a READ
(with no file name) or PAUSE command is entered.
SET GUI <ON/OFF>
where ON specifies the GUI is running and OFF specifies the GUI
is not running.
OFF, will automatically be set to ON if the GUI is running.
GUI STATUS VARIABLES
= Status command for the GUI.
GUI WRITE ALL VARIABLES
Write variables for the GUI.
GUI SAVE PLOT CONTROL
= Save plot control values for the GUI.
