psplot Command


Converts files in plot format to PostScript format.


psplot [ -g Prologue ] [ File... ]


The psplot command reads files in plot format and converts them to PostScript format on the standard output. If no files are specified, the standard input is used. The conversion is almost one-to-one, with one PostScript function call for each plot primitive. You can modify the behavior of the file by changing the definitions of the PostScript functions in the prologue.


-gPrologue Uses the contents of the Prologue file instead of the default PostScript prologue. If this flag is not specified, the default prologue file is used.
