NAME
       overlay - Plots the specified UNIX plot_file in the MGED	display.

SYNOPSIS
       overlay {plot_file} [name]

DESCRIPTION
       Plots the specified UNIX	plot_file in the MGED display. Phony object
       names are created for each part of the plot file	that is	in a unique
       color. The names	are created by adding a	color to the specified name,
       or to A_PLOT_OVERA if no	name is	provided. The color suffix is built by
       converting the RGB color	to a six-digit hex number. Each	color
       corresponds to 2	hex digits, so that white becomes "ffffff," red
       becomes "ff0000," green is "00ff00," etc.

EXAMPLES
       The example shows the use of the	overlay	command	to plot	a specified
       UNIX plot file in the MGED display.

       Example 1. Plot a UNIX plot file	in the MGED display.

       mged>overlay plot.upl tmp

       Plots the UNIX plot file	plot.upl in the	MGED display, using tmp	as the
       base for	the phony object names.
