% pgdisp [options] &You can change the size of the server window with the mouse. You can also use standard -geometry and -display options with pgdisp. PGPLOT will adapt to the size selected, but it is not possible to change the size of a graph after it has been displayed. To remove the server, select Quit from its menu. If the pgdisp program is not in a directory in your path, you will need to use the full file name (or create an alias), e.g.,
% /usr/local/pgplot/pgdisp [options] &
% setenv DISPLAY :0or
% setenv DISPLAY lo-fan:0.0The first example would cause the display to appear on the local machine. Other values which can be used to accomplish this are "unix:0.0" and "lhost:0.0", where lhost is the name of the local host.
% pgdisp -id # [options] &where # represents any integer. Note that there cannot be a copy of figdisp and a copy of pgdisp running on the same screen with the same id. To send graphics to a particular pgdisp window, specify the id number before /XDISP, e.g., "1/XDISP". The default is 0.
The window can be resized arbitrarily. The initial size is determined by the figdisp.lg.geometry resource. Since PGPLOT automatically scales to use the entire window, the line graphics window should not be resized while a program is accessing it. If this is done, the display server will not crash, but the output will look odd, and cursor positioning may be incorrect.
The window title is updated to show the position of the cursor when the cursor is in the line graphics window.
Command Line Option X resource Default Notes
-display disp .display none The display on which the display server should run. -id # .id 0 The id number of this copy of figdisp or pgdisp. An arbitrary number of copies of figdisp/pgdisp may be run at the same time, as long as each one's id number is unique. -geometry WxH[+x+y] 512x512 This flag corresponds to .bm.geometry in figdisp and .lg.geometry in pgdisp -lgGeometry WxH[+x+y] .lg.geometry 512x512 The line graphics window geometry. -lineColors # .lineColors 16 The number of colors to use for line graphics. -visual .visual Any The visual to use. Accepted values include the X11 visuals PseudoColor and GrayScale, as well as Default (only the default visual is allowed) and Any (any visual is allowed) for either pgdisp or figdisp. Pgdisp also allows the X11 visual classes StaticGray, StaticColor, DirectColor, and TrueColor. -lgCrosshair .lg.Crosshair Specify to get cross-hair cursor.
