AIPS HELP file for PRTPL in 31DEC20
As of Sat Feb 22 16:01:12 2020
PRTPL: Task to send a plot file to the line printer
INNAME Image name (name)
INCLASS Image name (class)
INSEQ 0.0 9999.0 Image name (seq. #)
INDISK Disk drive #
PLVER 0.0 46655.0 Version # of PL file. 0=>high
ASPMM 0.0 Arc sec per mm. 0=>self scale
Scale factor for some types
of plots (see HELPs)
COPIES 1.0 10.0 Number of copies.
DOCENTER -1.0 1.0 Center on page? > 0 = yes
-1->length can overlap fold
DOINVERS -1.0 1.0 White on black? > 0 => yes.
BADDISK Disks to avoid for scratch.
Use: PRTPL will find an extension file of type PL and use the
graphics commands in that file to build a bit map. The
graph described by the bit map will then be written to
the the dot-matrix plotter (often also the printer).
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.
PLVER.......Version # of the PL file. 0 => largest version #
ASPMM.......Scaling factor with 0 => self scale. For CNTR,
PCNTR, and GREYS plots with related position
axes, ASPMM is the requested arc sec / mm on the
output plot. For all other plots, it is a
scale reduction factor (0 < ASPMM < 1). Note:
grey scales will round down to nearest integer
plotter dots per pixel and one cannot request
a plot to overfill the paper.
COPIES......Number of copies of the plot. 0 => 1.
DOCENTER....Center the image on the page? > 0 -> yes. <= 0
-> will allow the plot to extend beyond the fold
in the paper. If ASPMM is set so the plot
extends beyond the paper width, it is set to fit.
DOINVERS....White contour on black page? <= 0 -> no.
BADDISK.....Numbers of the disks which should not be used for
the plot scratch file.
