ncl_pcsetr man page

PCSETR — Sets the value of an internal parameter of type REAL or INTEGER.

Synopsis

CALL PCSETR (PNAM,RVAL)

C-Binding Synopsis

#include <ncarg/ncargC.h>

void c_pcsetr (char *pnam, float rval)

Description

PNAM
(an input constant or variable of type CHARACTER) specifies the name of the parameter to be set. The name must appear as the first two characters of the string. If the internal parameter is one of the two (´BC´ and ´CC´) that are arrays, the index of the desired array element may appear, enclosed in parentheses, in columns 3 and following. Other characters may be used to document the use of the parameter being retrieved; for example, instead of just ´MA´, one can use ´MA - MAPPING FLAG´ and, instead of ´CC(10)´, one can use ´CC(10) - SPECIAL COLOR 10´.
RVAL
(an input expression of type REAL) is the value to be assigned to the internal parameter specified by PNAM. If the internal parameter is of type REAL, the value given to it is RVAL. If the internal parameter is of type INTEGER, the value given to it is INT(RVAL).

C-Binding Description

The C-binding argument descriptions are the same as the FORTRAN argument descriptions.

Usage

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.

Examples

Use the ncargex command to see the following relevant examples: elblba, cbex01, epltch, tconpa, tlblba, fpcfonts, fpchiqu.

Access

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

Messages

See the plotchar man page for a description of all Plotchar error messages and/or informational messages.
