{ version = 2.62; (* of genpic.p 2013 Jun 28} (* begin module describe.genpic *) (* name genpic: convert genhis output to pic input synopsis genpic(histog: in, genpicp: in, picout: out, output: out) files histog: the output of the genhis program genpicp: parameters to control the histogram are one per line. The first line must be the version number of the this program. This allows the program to recognize when the parameter file is old. If the version is less than 2.26, genpic will upgrade the genpicp file. x: x coordinate of graph start on the page (cm) y: y coordinate of graph start on the page (cm) rotation: angle to rotate the graph graphheight: height of the core graph (cm). When there is no y axis (original design of the program) this number determines the height of the highest histogram box ("boxheight"). When there is a y axis, it is the length of the y axis. boxwidth: width of the histogram boxes. (cm) intervalsize: the space for the interval number. (cm) histogramvalue: the space for the histogram value. (cm) boxshift: how much to shift the boxes up relative to the numbers. (cm) ifield: number of characters devoted to the interval idecimal: number of characters devoted to the interval's decimal places nfield: number of characters devoted to the number of numbers modulo: an integer that determines which interval numbers are shown. Modulo = 1 gives all numbers, modulo = 2 gives every even number, etc. If there is a second real number on the line, the modulomultiplier, then the interval numbers are first multiplied by this number. This allows one to control intervals below 1. (This doesn't work quite right yet.)

If it is 'n' then the initial bounding box will be the page parameters defined in constants inside the program (llx, lly, urx, ury and changes as set by the previous parameter line). Otherwise the program will attempt to determine a good starting bounding box. The next 4 parameters are four real numbers that define the edges around the figure in cm. To allow a graph to be imbedded into another figure, its size must be defined in PostScript (with %%BoundingBox). By setting these four numbers, the edges are defined. Negative values are allowed; this will move the edges *inward*.

The program genpic converts this simple histogram into PostScript commands. Therefore, one can imbed output from genhis in the text of a paper.

Schneider bugs 2003 Aug 21, 2.30: WARNING: ALL PARAMETER FILES WILL HAVE TO BE ADJUSTED. I discovered a bug in which the graph shifts right depending on number of '*' comment lines in the histog file. This bug was removed. This will ALTER the required x coordinate of ALL GRAPHS!!! It is a nasty bug because all parameter files depended on this and each one was adjusted (unintentionally) by hand to account for it. It is a holdover from some time (perhaps) when the comment lines were printed on the output. Since we don't do that anymore, it is not needed. The effect of having the bug was that if one generated graphs with different numbers of header line comments, the graphs would shift depending on the number of header lines and so the graphs would be different. technical note defaults for the page parameters are in module genpic.const.
