xplot84driver (CCP4: Supported Program)
NAMExplot84driver - X-windows tool, a viewer for Plot84 meta files.
DESCRIPTIONxplot84driver belongs to the XCCPJiffy class of simple X11 graphic based programs. xplot84driver reads a Plot84 Metafile, recognises pictures and interprets them.
xplot84driver uses an X-Windows device and has an option to create a PostScript file.
Running the program xplot84driver creates a Header window with boxes showing:
NOTE ON COLOURS AND LINE STYLES - For Users and ProgrammersWhere a program allows a user to specify colours in numbers (for example PLUTO), then the user should be aware of the mapping of colour numbers to real colours and to line properties of a black/white PostScript Laser printer. These are controlled via the entries in the X-resource database.
xplot84driver works in colour/linewidth graphic mode, i.e. maps colour numbers given by plot84 file contents to real colours for X graphics and Postscript line attributes. Currently 10 colours are available.
X colours, Postscript line attributes and width are controlled via the entries in X-resource database (see X manual). It is recommended to load X-resources into the X-server database (xrdb). Once the database is loaded, one can optimise it using xrdb to load/merge a personalised set of X-Application Resources.
X mapping is controlled by:
XCCPJiffy.plot84Picture*draw2d.background: white XCCPJiffy.plot84Picture*draw2d.color1: black . . . XCCPJiffy.plot84Picture*draw2d.col or10: indigo Line width is interpreted directly.
Postscript mapping is controlled by:
XCCPJiffy*psColor1: 1 setlinejoin  0 setdash . . . XCCPJiffy*psColor10: 1 setlinejoin [8 1] 0 setdash Line width is calculated as: value from plot84matefile * XCCPJiffy*psBasicLineWidth resourceTo check your current setting use for instance
