Conrec_family_params — Includes a brief description of all Conrec_family internal parameters.

Description

No parameter setting functions are available for the Conrec_family utility. Parameters were set through common blocks CONRE1 and CONRE4. There are three versions of the CONREC code. The normal version is in the standard NCAR Graphics library. The other two versions are in optional libraries one of which is linked when the ncargf77 option -quick, or -super is declared on the command line.

The CONREC and EZCNTR entries can be invoked in four different ways to create contour plots which vary considerably in appearance. The four variations include quick, normal, smooth, and super contour lines. This progression represents a tradeoff between speed of computation and the appearance of the contour plots. These variations are specified through selected command line options of the ncargf77 command.

For normal or smooth options the parameter set is:

 COMMON /CONRE1/ IOFFP      ,SPVAL
 COMMON /CONRE4/ ISIZEL     ,ISIZEM     ,ISIZEP     ,NREP       ,
1                NCRT       ,ILAB       ,NULBLL     ,IOFFD      ,
2                EXT        ,IOFFM      ,ISOLID     ,NLA        ,
3                NLM        ,XLT        ,YBT        ,SIDE

For the quick option the parameter set is:

 COMMON /CONRE1/ IOFFP      ,SPVAL
 COMMON /CONRE4/ ISIZEM     ,ISIZEP     ,NLA        ,NLM        ,
1                XLT        ,YBT        ,SIDE       ,ISOLID     ,
2                EXT        ,IOFFD      ,IOFFM

For the super option the parameter set is:

 COMMON /CONRE1/ IOFFP      ,SPVAL      ,IHILO
 DATA ISIZEL,ISIZEM,ISIZEP,NLA,NLM,XLT,YBT,SIDE,ISOLID,NREP,NCRT/
1       1,  2,   0, 16, 40,.05,.05,  .9,  1023,   6,   4/
 DATA EXT,IOFFD,NULBLL,IOFFM,ILAB/.25,0,3,0,1/

Definitions of the inclusive set follow:

ISIZEL
    Size of line labels in Plotter Address Units (PAUs).
    0 = 8 PAUs,  1 = 12 PAUs, 2 = 16 PAUs, 3 = 24 PAUs,
    > 3 means use this number of PAUs.  [Default = 1]

ISIZEM
    Size of labels for minimums and maximums, as per
    the size definitions given for ISIZEL.
    [Default = 2]

ISIZEP
    Size of labels for data point values as per the
    size definitions given for ISIZEL.  [Default = 0]

NLA
    Approximate number of contour levels when
    internally generated.  [Default = 16]

NLM
    Maximum number of contour levels.  If this is to be
    increased, the dimensions of CL and RWORK in conrec.f
    must be increased by the same amount.  [Default = 40]

XLT
    Left hand edge of the plot (0.0 is the left edge of
    the frame and 1.0 is the right edge of the frame.)
    [Default = .05]

YBT
    Bottom edge of the plot (0.0 is the bottom of the
    frame and 1.0 is the top of the frame.)
    [Default = .05]

SIDE
    Length of longer edge of plot (see also EXT).
    [Default = .90]

NREP
    Number of repetitions of the dash pattern between
    line labels.  [Default = 6]

NCRT
    Number of CRT units per element (bit) in the dash
    pattern.  [Default = 4]

ILAB
    Flag to control the drawing of line labels.

- ILAB non-zero means label the lines.

- ILAB = 0 means do not label the lines.

[Default = 1]

NULBUL
    Number of unlabeled lines between labeled lines.
    For example, when NULBLL = 3, every fourth level
    is labeled.  [Default = 3]

IOFFD
    Flag to control normalization of label numbers.

- IOFFD = 0 means include decimal point when
  possible (do not normalize unless required).

- IOFFD non-zero means normalize all label
  numbers and output a scale factor in the
  message below the graph.  [Default = 0]

EXT
    Lengths of the sides of the plot are proportional
    to M and N (when CONREC sets the window and viewport).
    In extreme cases, when MIN(M,N)/MAX(M,N) is less
    than EXT, Conrec produces a square plot.
    [Default = .25]

IOFFP
    Flag to control special value feature.

- IOFFP = 0 means the special value feature is
  not in use.

- IOFFP non-zero means the special value feature
  is in use.  (SPVAL is set to the special value.)
  Contour lines will then be omitted from any cell
  with any corner equal to the special value.

[Default = 0]

SPVAL
    Contains the special value when IOFFP is non-zero.
    [Default = 0.]

IOFFM
    Flag to control the message below the plot.

- IOFFM = 0  if the message is to be plotted.

- IOFFM non-zero if the message is to be omitted.

[Default = 0]

ISOLID
    Dash pattern for non-negative contour lines.
    [Default = 1023]
