Using the %PLOTIT Macro

%PLOTIT Macro Options Used in this Book

Most of the examples in this book that invoke the %PLOTIT macro are created with a specific set of options. The graphics are generated by using a special macro variable called plotitop.

The code you see in the examples creates the color graphics that appear in the online (CD) version of the manual. A slightly different set of options and statements are used to create the black and white graphics that appear in the printed version of the book.

To create the online (color) version of the graphic output, the plotitop variable is defined as follows.

   %let plotitop =  gopts   = gsfmode = replace
                    gaccess = gsasfile device = gif
                    hsize   = 5.63     vsize  = 3.5 
                    cback   = white,
                    cframe  = ligr,
                    color   = black,   
                    colors  = red blue white,
                    options = noclip expand, post=myplot.gif;

To create the black and white version of the graphic output, which appears in the printed version of the manual, the plotitop variable is defined as follows:

   %let plotitop =  gopts   = gsfmode = replace
                    gaccess = gsasfile device = pslepsf
                    hsize   = 5.63     vsize  = 3.5 
                    cback   = white,    
                    color   = black, 
                    colors  = black, 
                    options = noclip border expand, post=myplot.ps;

For information on graphics options used in other examples, see Chapter 2, "Introduction."
