M_PLOTTER(3)	       FreeBSD Library Functions Manual		  M_PLOTTER(3)

     M_Plotter -- Agar-Math plotting widget

     #include <agar/math.h>

     The M_Plotter widget plots	one or more numerical datasets.	 The widget is
     suitable for plotting data	in real-time (fetching the data	from different
     types of sources),	but it can also	plot existing datasets all at once.
     Extra annotations (labels)	can be associated with the individual plots.

     The data displayed	by M_Plotter can be retrieved from different types of
     sources.  Currently implemented sources include:

     M_PLOT_MANUALLY		He data	will be	entered	explicitely via	calls
				to M_PlotReal()	(see PLOTTING section).	 This
				is the default plot type set by	M_PlotNew().

     M_PLOT_FROM_VARIABLE_VFS	Fetch the value	of the given object vari-
				able/property.	See AG_Object(3),

     M_PLOT_FROM_REAL		Fetch value by dereferencing a pointer to an

     M_PLOT_FROM_INT		Fetch value by dereferencing a pointer to an

     M_PLOT_FROM_COMPONENT	Fetch value from entry i, j of a M_Matrix 3.

     M_PLOT_DERIVATIVE		Compute	as the derivative of another M_Plot.

     The M_PlotterNew()	function allocates, initializes, and attaches a	new
     M_Plotter widget.	Acceptable flags include:

     M_PLOTTER_HFILL	Expand horizontally in parent (equivalent to invoking

     M_PLOTTER_VFILL	Expand vertically in parent (equivalent	to invoking

			is recommended as an alternative to

     M_PlotterSizeHint() sets an initial preferred widget size in pixels.

     M_PlotterSetDefaultFont() configures a default font face for use with
     plotter labels (see PLOT LABELS section).

     M_PlotterSetDefaultColor()	sets entry colorIdx in the palette of default
     plot colors.  Newly created plots are assigned an initial plot color from
     this palette in a round-robin fashion.  Valid indices are 0 up to

     M_PlotterSetDefaultScale()	sets the default X and Y scaling factor	that
     will be assigned to newly created plots.

     void M_PlotVectorv(M_Plot *pl, Uint n, const M_Vector **values)

     void M_PlotterUpdate(M_Plot *pl)

     M_PlotNew() creates a new plot with no label and a	source type of
     M_PLOT_MANUALLY (see DESCRIPTION).	 The type, argument can	take on	the

     enum m_plot_type {
	     M_PLOT_POINTS,	     /*	Individual points */
	     M_PLOT_LINEAR,	     /*	Linear interpolation */
	     M_PLOT_CUBIC_SPLINE,    /*	Cubic spline interpolation */
	     M_PLOT_VECTORS	     /*	Vector arrows/cones */

     The M_PlotFromReal() and M_PlotFromInt() variants create a	plot which
     will be generated by dereferencing	the value of an	integer	or real
     variable.	The plot is assigned a specified label string by default.

     M_PlotFromDerivative() creates a plot which will be computed as the de-
     rivative of plot.	Nothing	prevents plot from being a derivative plot it-

     M_PlotFromVariableVFS() creates a plot that will be generated by reading
     the value of a numerical AG_Object(3) variable.  The object itself	must
     be	located	under vfsRoot, and the varName string can take on the form
     "<object-name>:<variable-name>".  See AG_Variable(3) for details.

     M_PlotClear() erases the existing contents	of a plot.

     M_PlotSettings() constructs and displays a	dialog which allows the	user
     to	change plot parameters (style, color, etc.), as	well as	to display the
     plot data in tabular format.

     M_PlotSetColor() configures an alternate color for	plot pl	in RGB format.

     M_PlotSetScale() configures an alternate horizontal and vertical scaling
     factor for	plot pl.

     The functions M_PlotSetXoffs() and	M_PlotSetYoffs() set specific display
     X and Y offsets.  Note that these offsets are bound to scrollbars and can
     be	manipulated by the user.

     The M_PlotReal() function enters an explicit value	v in plot pl.
     M_PlotRealv() enters data from an array values, containing	n entries.

     M_PlotVector() enters data	from an	M_Vector(3).  M_PlotVectorv() enters
     data from an array	of n vectors.

     The M_PlotterUpdate() routine updates all plots (except those using the
     M_PLOT_MANUALLY source type), effectively increasing the width of the
     plot display.  This involves the dereferencing of associated variables
     (and possibly the evaluation of AG_Variable(3) functions for
     M_PLOT_FROM_VARIABLE_VFS).	 If scrolling mode is set (scrolling mode can
     be	enabled	by the user panning to the right edge of the display), the
     display is	scrolled by one	increment.

     M_PlotLabel * M_PlotLabelNew(M_Plot *pl, enum m_plot_label_type type,
     Uint x, Uint y, const char	*format, ...)

     M_PlotLabel * M_PlotLabelReplace(M_Plot *pl, enum m_plot_label_type type,
     Uint x, Uint y, const char	*format, ...)

     void M_PlotLabelSetText(M_Plot *pl, enum m_plot_label_type	type, Uint x,
     Uint y, const char	*format, ...)

     The M_PlotLabelNew() function creates a new label,	associated with	plot
     pl, and returns a pointer to the new label	object.	 The type argument can
     take on the values:

     M_LABEL_X	       Associate label with an X value.	 A vertical alpha-
		       blended line will be rendered along with	the label.

     M_LABEL_Y	       Associate label with an Y value.

     M_LABEL_FREE      Label can be freely moved by the	user.

     The M_PlotLabelReplace() variant searches for an existing label with the
     same text string.	If such	a label	is found, it is	replaced by the	new

     M_PlotLabelSetText() changes the text string associated with the label.
     format is a standard format string.

     The M_Plotter widget does not generate any	event.

     For the M_Plotter object:

     int xOffs,	yOffs	     Display offset in pixels (bound to	scrollbars).
     M_Real xScale, yScale   Horizontal	and vertical scaling factors (also
     AG_Scrollbar *hbar	     Horizontal	scrollbar object.
     AG_Scrollbar *vbar	     Vertical scrollbar	object.

     AG_Intro(3), AG_Scrollbar(3), AG_Widget(3), M_Complex(3), M_Matrix(3),
     M_Real(3),	M_Vector(3)

     The M_Plotter widget first	appeared in Agar 1.3.4.
