plot3-plot3 — convert an extended to a simple UnixPlot file
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.
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
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
verbose option causes each plot command to be described as it is being
A warning message is given if the input plot file did not contain a space command since most older UnixPlot programs require them.
