ncl_gflas1 man page

GFLAS1 — Initiates storage of plotting instructions into a disk file. Instructions subsequent to GFLAS1, but prior to a GFLAS2 call, will be stored on disk rather than inserted into the output metafile.

Synopsis

CALL GFLAS1 (IB)

C-Binding Synopsis

#include <ncarg/ncargC.h>

void c_gflas1 (int ib)

Description

IB
(INTEGER, input) Can be any integer between 0 and 99 inclusive, thus making it possible to define 100 different storage buffers in a single job step.

C-Binding Description

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

Usage

GFLAS1 automatically assigns the name GNFBxx (GKS New Flash Buffer) to the file that will receive subsequent plotting instructions, where xx is the integer value of IB. For example, if GFLAS1 is called with an argument of 9, then subsequent plotting instructions will be stored in file GNFB09. You may need to know the name of the disk file where the plotting instructions are stored if and when you use GFLAS4. The GNFBxx files are all created using FORTRAN logical unit IC as specified in the GOPWK call for WISS.

Examples

Use the ncargex command to see the following relevant examples: ccpmovi, tgflas, fgke02.

Access

To use GFLAS1 or c_gflas1, load the NCAR Graphics libraries ncarg, ncarg_gks, and ncarg_c, preferably in that order.
