ncl_gopen_gks man page

gopen_gks (Open GKS) — opens the GKS package

Synopsis

#include <ncarg/gks.h>

void gopen_gks(const char *err_file, size_t mem_unit);

Description

err_file
(Input) - The place to which error messages are to be written. Typically this should be "stdout".
mem_unit
(Input) - The dimension of an internal buffer. Currently in NCAR GKS-0A, mem_unit is ignored.

Usage

To get output to any workstation, gopen_gks, gopen_ws and gactivate_ws must be called in that order. For jobs producing only CGM output, the three calls to gopen_gks, gopen_ws, and gactivate_ws can be replaced with a call to the SPPS function c_opngks().

Access

To use the GKS C-binding routines, load the ncarg_gks and ncarg_c libraries.
