PLOT3-PLOT3(1)			    BRL-CAD			PLOT3-PLOT3(1)

NAME
       plot3-plot3 - convert an	extended to a simple UnixPlot file

SYNOPSIS
       plot3-plot3 [-v]	[-S] < unix_plot > unix_plot

DESCRIPTION
       UnixPlot	is a simple machine and	device independent plotting file
       format found on both System V and BSD Unix systems. BRL has extended
       that format to include color, three dimensional plotting, machine
       independent floating point coordinates, and a flush command for
       interactive output.

       plot3-plot3 converts an extended	UnixPlot file to the simpler format
       for use by older, and non-extended, programs. It	drops color and	flush
       commands, strips	the Z coordinate of 3D commands, and converts floating
       point coordinates to integer. By	default, conversion to integer is done
       by simple truncation. If	the -S option is given,	the "space" command in
       the plot	file is	used to	center and scale the plot to the full 16 bit
       signed integer plotting space (-32767 to	+32767). This is particularly
       useful for converting floating point files. The -v verbose option
       causes each plot	command	to be described	as it is being converted.

DIAGNOSTICS
       A warning message is given if the input plot file did not contain a
       space command since most	older UnixPlot programs	require	them.
