plstyl — Set line style
plstyl(nms, mark, space)
This sets up the line style for all lines subsequently drawn. A line consists of segments in which the pen is alternately down and up. The lengths of these segments are passed in the arrays mark and space respectively. The number of mark-space pairs is specified by nms. In order to return the line style to the default continuous line, plstyl(3plplot) should be called with nms=0 .(see also pllsty(3plplot))
Redacted form: plstyl(mark, space)
This function is used in examples 1,9,14.
- nms (PLINT, input)
The number of mark and space elements in a line. Thus a simple broken line can be obtained by setting nms=1 . A continuous line is specified by setting nms=0 .
- mark (const PLINT *, input)
Pointer to array with the lengths of the segments during which the pen is down, measured in micrometers.
- space (const PLINT *, input)
Pointer to array with the lengths of the segments during which the pen is up, measured in micrometers.
