GOPKS (Open GKS) — opens the GKS package

Synopsis

CALL GOPKS (ERRFIL, BUFA)

C-Binding Synopsis

#include <ncarg/gks.h>

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

Description

ERRFIL
(Input, Integer) - The Fortran unit number to which error messages are to be written. Typically this should be unit 6.
BUFA
(Input, Integer) - The dimension of an internal buffer. Currently in NCAR GKS-0A, BUFA is ignored.

Usage

To get output to any workstation, GOPKS, GOPWK and GACWK must be called in that order. For jobs producing only CGM output, the three calls to GOPKS, GOPWK and GACWK can be replaced with a call to the SPPS function OPNGKS.

Access

To use GKS routines, load the NCAR GKS-0A library ncarg_gks.
