DASHDB — Defines a dash pattern without labels.

Synopsis

CALL DASHDB (IPAT)

C-Binding Synopsis

#include <ncarg/ncargC.h>

void c_dashdb (int *ipat)

Description

IPAT
(an input expression of type INTEGER) is a 16-bit dash pattern (1=solid, 0=blank); e.g., the binary number 1111000011110000, which is a decimal 61680, will give dashes of medium length.

C-Binding Description

The C-binding argument description is the same as the FORTRAN argument description.

Examples

Use the ncargex command to see the following relevant examples: carline, colcon, cmpfil, cmpitm, cmplab, cmpmsk, cmptit, cmpusr, mpex08, tdashc, tdashl, tdashp, tdashs, fdldashd.

Usage

DASHDB may be called to define a dash pattern for any of the four versions of Dashline.

A dash pattern defined by a call to DASHDB will supersede one defined by an earlier call to DASHDB or DASHDC.

Access

To use DASHDB or c_dashdb, load the NCAR Graphics libraries ncarg, ncarg_gks, and ncarg_c, preferably in that order.
