savelofig — save a logical figure on disk

Synopsis

#include "mlu.h"
void savelofig(ptfig)
lofig_list ∗ptfig;

Parameter

ptfig

Pointer to the lofig to be written on disk

Description

savelofig writes on disk the contents of the figure pointer to by  ptfig. All the figure lists are ran through, and the appropriate objects written, independently of the figure mode.
The savelofig function in fact performs a call to a driver, chosen by the MBK_OUT_LO(1) environment variable. The directory in which the file is to be written is the one set by MBK_WORK_LIB(1). See MBK_OUT_LO(1), MBK_WORK_LIB(1) and mbkenv(3) for details.

Errors

"∗∗∗ mbk error ∗∗∗ not supported logical output format 'xxx'"

The environment variable MBK_OUT_LO is not set to a legal logical format.

"∗∗∗ mbk error ∗∗∗ savelofig : could not open file figname.ext"

Either the directory or the file are write protected, so it's not possible to open figname.ext, where ext is the file format extension, for  writing.

Example

#include "mlu.h"
void save_na2_y()
{
	savelofig(getlofig("na2_y"));
}
