Description

ncargex provides the user with access to over 300 complete example NCAR Graphics Fortran and C source codes, including the examples in the NCAR Graphics Tutorial. ncargex copies the source code for the specified example(s) into the current directory and then compiles, links, and executes the example. Depending on the type of workstation specified on the command line, the output may either be an NCGM (NCAR Graphics Metafile) file, one of many types of PostScript files, or a text dump. It is also possible for no output to be produced if you select the "x11" workstation, in which case each frame is displayed directly to a separate X window after it is generated. If no workstation is specified on the command line, then it defaults to an "NCGM", unless the example is a special one which is discussed below.

If you select one of the workstation types that produces an output file, then the file name will have the same name as the example and ending with an appropriate suffix: ".ncgm", ".txt", ".ps", etc.

Certain examples were created to demonstrate a particular function, like how to rename your metafile from within the program, how to use the full page when going to PostScript output, how to use the X11 driver and produce a graphic file at the same time, etc. If the example that you ask for is one of these, a message will be printed to this effect to alert you.

In order to run ncargex, you must have your NCARG_ROOT environment variable set to the parent directory where the NCAR Graphics libraries, binaries, and include files were installed. If this environment variable is not set, ncargex will attempt to set it for you. If the NCAR Graphics libraries, binaries, and include files were not installed under one parent directory, then you will need to set the environment variables NCARG_LIB, NCARG_BIN, and NCARG_INCLUDE instead. Please see "man ncargintro" for more information.

Options

-W
Specify the workstation type. This argument can be specified as a number or as a string, where the number has the same value you would use in a call to GOPWK. The following numbers are valid:
1
- NCGM
8
- X11 window.
10
- text dump of graphics output.
20
- color PostScript in portrait mode.
21
- color Encapsulated PostScript (EPS) in portrait mode.
22
- color Encapsulated PostScript Interchange format (EPSI) in portrait mode.
23
- monochrome PostScript in portrait mode.
24
- monochrome Encapsulated PostScript (EPS) in portrait mode.
25
- monochrome Encapsulated PostScript Interchange format (EPSI) in portrait mode.
26
- color PostScript in landscape mode.
27
- color Encapsulated PostScript (EPS) in landscape mode.
28
- color Encapsulated PostScript Interchange format (EPSI) in landscape mode.
29
- monochrome PostScript in landscape mode.
30
- monochrome Encapsulated PostScript (EPS) in landscape mode.
31

- monochrome Encapsulated PostScript Interchange format (EPSI) in landscape mode.

If you want to specify the workstation as a string, then there are a few ways this can be done. For example, the following workstation types are valid:

ncgm
- NCGM
x11
- X11 window
text

- text dump of graphics output

For PostScript output, there are more attributes: the type of PostScript you file want ("ps", "eps", or "epsi"), whether you want color or monochrome ("color" or "mono"), and whether you want portrait or landscape mode ("port" or "land"). The orientation and the color preference can be omitted (as they will will default to "port" and "color" respectively), but you must specify the PostScript file type. Each attribute can be entered in any order, separated by periods. The following are examples of valid PostScript workstation types:

ps.color
- color PostScript in portrait mode.
land.eps.mono
- monochrome Encapsulated PostScript format (EPS) in landscape mode.
epsi
- color Encapsulated PostScript Interchange format (EPSI) in portrait mode.
port.mono.ps
- monochrome PostScript in portrait mode.

Any combination of these three types of attributes can be used, as long as one of them is the PostScript file type.
