CBPLOT -4.0 4.0 Position for beam plot:

Use: PLAYR loads 2 cataloged images into two television image
memories. Then interactive options are offered. This is
a demo of TV DEVICE object code.
USERID......User ID of owner of image. 0 => current user,
32000 => any user.
INNAME......Image name(name). Standard defaults.
INCLASS.....Image name(class). Standard defaults.
INSEQ.......Image name(seq. #). 0 => highest.
INDISK......Disk drive # of image. 0 => any.
TBLC........The Bottom Left-hand pixel of the subarray of
the map to be displayed. The value (0,0,...)
means take the entire first plane of the image.
TTRC........The Top Right-hand pixel of the subarray of
the map to be displayed. The value (0,0) means
take the entire plane of the image.
TXINC.......Load every TXINC'th column beginning at TBLC.
TXINC = -1 => interpolate columns to fill as much
of the screen as possible. TXINC = -2 =>
interpolate one column between image columns (if
possible), -3 => 2 interpolated columns, etc.
TYINC.......Load every TYINC'th row beginning at TBLC.
TYINC = -1 => interpolate rows to fill as much of
the screen as possible. TYINC = -2 =>
interpolate one row between image rows (if
possible), -3 => 2 interpolated rows, etc.
TVCHAN......Image channel to load. 0 => 1.
TV2CHAN.....2nd Image channel to load. 0 => none.
TVCORN......TV pixel location (X,Y) of the bottom left-corner
of the image. 0 => center on TV
PIXRANGE....Min,Max intensity to display. 0 => entire range.
FUNCTYPE....Image intensity transfer function
'LN' => linear; 'NE' => negative lin.
'LG' => log; 'NG' => negative log;
'L2' => extreme log; 'N2' => negative extra log;
'SQ' => square root,; 'NQ' => negative square root;
others => linear.
UVWTFN......FUNCTYPE for second image.
DETIME......Delay time in seconds (>= 120) to quit if you stop
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.
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.
SCALR1......Specifies the width of any step wedges. 0 => -16
< 0 => set position with the cursor.
DOWEDGE.....Specifies the number of contours to use with
OFMCONTOUR and OFMWEDGE. Can be reset
interactively. <= 0 => 8.
OFMFILE.....Name of the OFM file to be gotten, saved, zapped.
Can be changed interactively.
CBPLOT......Selects the corner in which the half-power beam plot is
0: no beam plot
1: lower left
2: lower right
3: upper right
4: upper left
< 0 -> plot as abs(CBPLOT) but erase any graphics in the
area of the beam plot
