ncl_pcdlsc man page
PCDLSC — Defines the default list of "special colors" used by PCHIQU in drawing certain characters from the filled fonts. Calling PCDLSC with the argument IFCI will define color indices IFCI, IFCI+1, IFCI+2, ..., IFCI+15 and it will set all elements of the internal parameter array ´CC´ corresponding to indices 1 through 16. At the moment, although such a call does define a set of sixteen colors (ranging from blue to red) and set the elements of ´CC´, it´s a bit pointless, since there are no characters for which the special colors are used. In the future, there will be a few such (like the state highway symbol, which is normally drawn in a particular pair of colors); at that time, the routine will be of more use.
CALL PCDLSC (IFCI)
void c_pcdlsc (int ifci)
(an input expression of type INTEGER) specifies the first of a set of sixteen color indices that may be defined by PCDLSC. Make sure that these color indices are not already used.
The C-binding argument descriptions are the same as the FORTRAN argument descriptions.
This routine allows you to set the current value of Plotchar parameters. For a complete list of parameters available in this utility, see the plotchar_params man page.
To use PCDLSC or c_pcdlsc, load the NCAR Graphics libraries ncarg, ncarg_gks, and ncarg_c, preferably in that order.
See the plotchar man page for a description of all Plotchar error messages and/or informational messages.
