Setting DADiSP's Series Configuration

 

The following dadisp.cnf keywords are used to set DADiSP's Series configuration.

 

BUFSIZE

 

Set the value of the series cache size (i.e. the number of points in a series that DADiSP will keep in memory before using the disk for further storage). There is a trade-off between buffer size and the number of series a Worksheet can process. If you are working with long data series, raising this parameter will improve throughput, but may cause an out-of-memory condition for Worksheets with large numbers of series. The minimum value is 101.

 

LINEWIDTH

 

Set the default thickness of the line for a Line Plot. Enter an integer value. Dynamic changes to this parameter will take effect the next time a series is generated in a clear or new Window.

 

PLOT_STYLE

 

Choose a valid plot style for the default setting. Valid plot styles are: Lines (0), Points (1), Sticks (2), Bars (3), Tables (4), Hi Lo chart (5), Stacks (7), % Stack (8), and Steps (9). Dynamic changes to this parameter will take effect the next time a series is generated in a clear or new Window.
