INNAME Image name (name)
INCLASS Image name (class)
INSEQ 0.0 9999.0 Image name (seq. #)
INDISK 0.0 9.0 Disk drive #
PLVER 0.0 46655.0 Version # of PL file. 0=>last
GRCHAN 0.0 8.0 Graphics channel 0=>several
TVCHAN 0.0 16.0 TV channel selection
TVCORN 0.0 2048.0 TV pixel location of bottom
left corner of image 0=> self
scale, non 0 => pixel scale.
DODARK -1.0 1.0 <= 0 => plot "dark" vectors
in full graphics chan color
Use: TVPL will find an extension file of type PL and use the graphics
commands in that file to display the plot on the TV device.
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 => highest version #
GRCHAN......Graphics channel (1 - 7) to use for line drawing.
0 => Use different graphics channels for the various
parts of the plot - namely 1 for labeling, 2 for
contours, 3 for polarization lines, and 4 for stars.
TVCHAN......TV channel to display gray-scale portion of plot.
0 => 1.
NOTE: If the plot file contains 3-color plot commands,
then TVCHAN should be low enough that channels TVCHAN+1
and TVCHAN+2 exist (the usual XAS has only 16 multi-bit
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.
DODARK......> 0 => use graphics channel 8 to plot black overlay
lines whenever the plot files calls for dark vectors.
<= 0 => plot "dark" vectors as bright lines in the
colored graphics channels as if they were bright lines.
