Scientific Graphics and Data Analysis

7. - Drawing the Plot

This chapter includes explanations of the commands for drawing plots:
  •        on the pen plotter       
  •        on graphics-filter devices

Chapter 8 describes how to initialize the pen plotter, while Chapter 9 shows how to initialize filters for the other graphics devices. The pen-plotter versions of drawing commands described below begin with a p; the graphics filter versions begin with a z. In both cases, many of the commands can be grouped together by following the initial p or z with the appropriate letters. For example, palt will draw axes, labels and the title on a pen plotter.
