General Commands (Section 1)
cgm2ncgm
ncgm2cgm and cgm2ncgm are filters for converting back and forth between NCAR Computer Graphics Metafile (CGM) and vanilla CGM. ncgm2cgm strips the wrapper from...
ctrans
ctrans is a metafile translator, taking metafile(s), a metafile stored in the NCAR Computer Graphics Metafile (CGM) standard, and interpreting its instructions...
fcaps
fcaps is a simple script that reports all the available fontcaps for use in metafile translation by the metafile translator ctrans(1NCARG).
findg
findg reads an input FORTRAN file, fortran-file, from the standard input and prints out those lines (along with line numbers) which contain calls to old...
fontc
fontc converts an ascii-encoded fontcap, ascii-fontcap-name, into a binary-encoded fontcap, binary-fontcap-name. Binary encoded fontcaps are system dependent...
gcaps
gcaps is a simple script that reports all the available graphcaps for use in metafile translation by the metafile translator ctrans(1NCARG).
graphc
graphc converts an ascii-encoded graphcap, ascii-graphcap-name, into a binary-encoded graphcap, binary-graphcap-name. Binary encoded graphcaps are system...
ictrans
ictrans is the user interface to the Computer Graphics Metafile (CGM) translator ctrans. ictrans will enter command interpreter mode upon invocation and await...
idt
idt provides a graphical user interface to the NCAR View interactive metafile translator ictrans. idt supports a subset of the ictrans command interface. idt...
med
med is a frame-level, metafile editor designed to resemble syntactically UNIX's sed(1) and ed(1). med operates on a copy of filename, called a buffer, and...
ncargcc
ncargcc is a script that invokes the C compiler/linker with the proper NCAR Graphics LLU (low-level utility) libraries. Arguments presented above are associated...
ncargex
ncargex provides the user with access to over 300 complete example NCAR Graphics Fortran and C source codes, including the examples in the NCAR Graphics...
ncargf77
ncargf77 is a script that invokes the FORTRAN 77 compiler/linker with the proper NCAR Graphics LLU (low-level utility) libraries. Arguments presented above are...
ncargf90
ncargf90 is a script that invokes the FORTRAN 90 compiler/linker with the proper NCAR Graphics LLU (low-level utility) libraries. Arguments presented above are...
ncargfile
ncargfile provides the user with access to special NCAR Graphics files or tables. ncargfile copies the specified file(s) into the current directory. In order to...
ncargpath
ncargpath has one argument which is the shortened name of the directory whose full pathname you want returned or the name of the attribute whose default value...
ncargrun
ncargrun is a script that invokes "program-name", which uses the NCAR GKS library, and applies the specified options. Prior to running your program, this script...
ncargversion
This command allows you to determine what version of NCAR Graphics that you are currently using. This can be helpful when trying to get consulting help on NCAR...
ncarlogo2ps
"ncarlogo2ps" takes as input a PostScript file created from NCAR Graphics 3.2 or later, or created from a "ctrans -d ps.color" command, and adds an NCAR logo to...
ng4ex
ng4ex provides the user with access to several C, Fortran, and NCL examples illustrating the use of the NCAR Graphics HLUs (High Level Utilities) and NCL...
nhlcc
nhlcc is a script that invokes the C compiler/linker with the proper NCAR Graphics LLU (low-level utility) and HLU (high-level utility) libraries. Arguments...
nhlf77
nhlf77 is a script that invokes the FORTRAN 77 compiler/linker with the proper NCAR Graphics LLU (low-level utility) and HLU (high-level utility) libraries...
nhlf90
nhlf90 is a script that invokes the FORTRAN 90 compiler/linker with the proper NCAR Graphics LLU (low-level utility) and HLU (high-level utility) libraries...
pre2ncgm
The "pre2ncgm" command reads a pre-CGM NCAR metafile from standard input and writes an NCAR CGM file to standard output. When plotted, the output file should...
psblack
psblack is a filter which reads a PostScript file as input and writes a PostScript file as output. In the output file the filter forces a black background and...
psplit
"psplit" takes a PostScript file as input (that may have multiple pictures) and splits it into individual PostScript files having a single frame each. If the...
pswhite
pswhite is a filter which reads a PostScript file as input and writes a PostScript file as output. In the output file the filter forces a white background and...
rascat
rascat reads each file in sequence and copies its contents to the standard output performing any format conversion and data massaging necessary as specified by...
rasgetpal
Given srcfile and no dstfile, rasgetpal will extract the color palette from srcfile and print it in textual form to standard output. Given srcfile and dstfile...
rasls
For each file rasls will generate a one line description of the rasterfile. Information provided includes the format type (Sun, HDF, etc.), the encoding...
rassplit
The program rassplit will open rasterfile and copy each frame to it's own separate output file. By default, all frames are extracted but the user can optionally...
