GROFF: Verb to turn off graphic channel(s).

INPUTS

GRCHAN          1.0          8.0   Graphics channel

          The desired channels may be given instead as an
          immediate argument in BINARY code to GROFF.  Example:
          GROFF(13) will turn off Graphics channels 1, 3, and 4.
          If there is no immediate argument and GRCHAN is zero,
          all Graphics channels are turned off.

HELP SECTION

GROFF
Type: Verb
Use:  Turn off (disable) one or more specified TV graphics channels.
      Does not affect status either on or off of channels not
      specified.

      Note that, if GROFF is used in a FOR or WHILE loop or in an
      IF-THEN-ELSE construct, then the immediate argument is required.
      Otherwise, some item necessary to the loop/construct will be
      taken as the immediate argument.

Adverbs: GROFF takes an immediate argument specifying in BINARY code
      which channels to turn off.  E.g. GROFF(43) disables graphics
      channels 1, 2, 4, and 6 (values 1 + 2 + 8 + 32 = 43).

  GRCHAN......Graphic channel.  Only used if immediate argument is
              omitted.   If the resulting channel number is zero, then
              all Graphics channels are disabled.  Thus GROFF(0) and
              GROFF(255) are equivalent.
