DESCRIPTION
       These functions generate	graphics output	for a set of  output  devices.
       The format of the output	is dependent upon which	 link editor option is
       used when the program is	compiled and  linked (see  Link	Editor).

       The term	"current point"	refers to the current setting for the x	and  y
       coordinates.

       The  arc()  function specifies a	circular arc. The coordinates (x0, y0)
       specify the center of the arc. The coordinates  (x1,  y1)  specify  the
       starting	 point	of  the	 arc. The coordinates (x2, y2) specify the end
       point of	the circular arc.

       The box() function specifies a rectangle	with coordinates
	(x0, y0), (x0, y1), (x1, y0), and (x1, y1). The	current	point  is  set
       to  (x1,	y1).

       The  circle()  function specifies a circle with a center	at the coordi-
       nates (x, y) and	a radius of r.

       The closevt() and closepl() functions flush the output.

       The cont() function specifies a line beginning at the current point and
       ending at the coordinates (x, y). The current point is set to  (x, y).

       The erase() function starts another frame of output.

       The  label()  function  places the null terminated string s so that the
       first character falls on	the current point.  The	 string	is then	termi-
       nated by	a  NEWLINE character.

       The  line()  function draws a line starting at the coordinates (x0, y0)
       and ending at the coordinates (x1, y1). The current  point  is  set  to
       (x1, y1).

       The linemod() function specifies	the style for drawing future lines.  s
       may contain one of the following:  dotted,  solid,  longdashed,	short-
       dashed, or dotdashed.

       The move() function sets	the current point to the coordinates (x, y).

       The openpl() or openvt()	function must be called	to open	the device be-
       fore any	other plot functions are called.

       The point() function plots the point given by the coordinates  (x,  y).
       The current point is set	to  (x,	y).

       The space() function specifies the size of the plotting area.  The plot
       will be reduced or enlarged as necessary	to fit the area	specified. The
       coordinates (x0,	y0) specify the	lower left hand	corner of the plotting
       area. The coordinates (x1, y1) specify the upper	right hand  corner  of
       the plotting area.

   Link	Editor
       Various flavors of these	functions exist	for different output  devices.
	They are obtained by using the following  ld(1)	options:

       - lplot
	     device-independent	graphics stream	on standard output in the for-
	     mat described in  plot(4B)

       -l300 GSI 300 terminal

       -l300s
	     GSI 300S terminal

       -l4014
	     Tektronix 4014 terminal

       -l450 GSI 450 terminal

       -lvt0
