term ,, file rast repl term ,,

plots to a file called "case.plot" or to the file:

nfile "otherfile.plot"

on the command line type >plot

choose "ps" and go on

the plot program asks you for color or bw

When I go to the step "choose "ps" and go on" It does not work. Do you know any tutorial talking about this. Thanks.

user guide chapter 19 -- "Hard Copy Production"

It would be very helpful if you describe the "does not work" a bit more precisely. What did you try exactly and what did not work?

Thanks.

I can generate some .plot file, but I don't know how to open it. Is the .plot file a graph file?

there exists the program "plot" to convert the .plot file to other formats. so exit prostar start the program "plot" from the command line and answer the questions.

the .plot file is also called "neutral plot file".

Leo,

The plot facility will fail if you haven't closed the case.plot file first. Whenever you're finished printing to it, write close casename.plot in PROSTAR. That makes the file "complete", and you can use it with e.g. plot-ps or open it in the animation module.

Regs.
