S2PLOT Standard Primitives
The S2PLOT standard primitives are based on the PGPLOT primitives, having a very similiar functional interface, but with additional parameters for (x,y,z) data. Standard primitives include:
The appearance of the primitives is controlled through attributes:
- Character height
- Arrowhead styles
In addition, for creating scientific graphs, there are functions to control:
- Axis labels
More advanced plotting features include:
- Data with error bars
- Parametric curves of the form fx(t), fy(t) and fz(t)
- Surfaces defined by functions of the form f(x, y)
- Surfaces defined by a 2-d array of nx * ny values
- Vector plots
The S2PLOT standard primitives are complemented by the native primitives.
