HPGL Plotting

 

DADiSP provides HPGL plotting support for output files of one Window, all Windows, or the Worksheet. There are three functions for HPGL Plotting, all of which are described in detail in the DADiSP Function Reference Manual.

 

 

Function

Description

PLOT

Creates an HPGL file of the current Window.

PLOTALLWIN

Creates an HPGL file of all Windows (one per page) in the current Worksheet.

PLOTWS

Creates an HPGL file of the Worksheet (on one page) as it is currently displayed.

 

 

An HPGL file contains a list of commands that plot the Window(s) on an HPGL compatible plotter. Several third-party packages can also read HPGL files. This is useful when embarking upon a desktop publishing project.
