Managing Graphics Windows

window, n   switch to window n (0-7)
winkill, n  delete window n (0-7)

The window command takes several keywords, for example:

  • dpi=75 makes a smaller X window than the default dpi=100,
  • private=1 forces use of private instead of shared colors,
  • dump=1 forces the palette to be dumped to the hcp file, and style specifies an alternative style sheet for tick and label style ("" and "" are two predefined style sheets).

The plf and pli commands require a color palette:

palette, name              load the standard palette name
palette, r, g, b           load a custom palette
palette, query=1, r, g, b  retrieve current palette

Standard palette names: "" (the default), "", "", "", "", and "".
