Note also that directories are separated by colons in a UNIX environment. This routine is used to create a legend in a graphics display.

The character size depends on the operating system you are using, the current font value, and the state of the! For example, if you are overploting several lines in a plot, and you wish to each to have a different color, you might do this: According to the IPCC: These are programs from the Coyote Library that are specifically identified as being associated with the Coyote Graphics System. This command allows you draw a filled or unfilled polygon on the display.

Here is code that produces a “normal” contour plot with 10 equally-spaced contour intervals. On-line documentation for the program is available. If using indexed color, and the long integer is in the rangethe long integer is interpreted as a color table index number.


This program implements a Taylor Diagram from user data. For example, I just spent one and a half hours trying to get Matthew’s basic contour plot to display correctly on my machine and the contour labels cohote still upside down. If this keyword is 0, the program always returns a color index number.

A dot chart or dot plot is a statistical chart consisting of data points plotted on a simple scale, typically with open or closed circles.
