HELP SECTION

PFPL1
Type: Task
Use:  PFPL1 is a paraform task to write commands to a plot file
      for the execution of a ????? plot of an image.  It plots
      one plane of an image on axes corresponding to the X and
      Y axes of the image.  The paraform itself does a grey
      scale image - use GREYS for a more complete imaging,
      however.
Adverbs:
  USERID......The ID of the owner of the image.  Ignored.
  INNAME......Image name (name).       Standard defaults.
  INCLASS.....Image name (class).      Standard defaults.
  INSEQ.......Image name (seq. #).     0 => highest.
  INDISK......Disk unit #.             0 => any.
  BLC.........Bottom Left Corner of image to contour.
              (0,0) means (1,1).
  TRC.........Top Right Corner of image to contour.
              (0,0) means top right corner of map.
  PIXRANGE....Clip at these intensities.
                                   0,0=> map min, max.
  LTYPE.......Labelling type, see HELP LTYPE for details:
              1 = border, 2 = no ticks, 3 or 7 = standard, 4 or 8 =
              relative to ref. pixel, 5 or 9 = relative to subimage
              (BLC, TRC) center, 6 or 10 = pixels.  7-10 all labels
              other than tick numbers and axis type are omitted.
              Less than 0 is the same except that the plot file
              version number and create time are omitted.
              Add n * 100 to alter the metric scaling.
  XYRATIO.....Ratio of X plt len to Y.
  DOCIRCLE....False (<= 0) means that tick marks are short lines
              extending inward from the plot borders.  True (>0)
              requests that a full coordinate grid be drawn.
  DOTV........> 0 => plot directly on the TV device, otherwise
              make a plot file for later display on one or
              more devices (including the TV if desired).
  GRCHAN......Graphics channel (1 - 7) to use for line drawing.
              0 => 1.
  TVCHAN......TV channel to display gray-scale portion of plot.
              0 => 1.
  TVCORN......TV pixel location (X,Y) where the bottom left-
              corner of the plot is to be placed. If either is
              zero, use the largest possible self scaling, else
              use pixel scaling with specified origin on the TV.

EXPLAIN SECTION

PFPL1: Task to create a ?????-plot extension file for an image
DOCUMENTOR: ??? Put your name here ???
RELATED PROGRAMS: PCNTR, LWPLA, TKPL, TVPL, TVWIN

                           PURPOSE

     PFPL1 generates a plot extension file containing an
????? plot, its border, and labels.
     The plot itself may be displayed on a printer, TEK screen,
or TV graphics channel by the tasks LWPLA, TKPL, or TVPL
respectively.
