## ncl_ngmisc: A collection of miscellaneous NCAR Graphics routines.

## NAME

Ngmisc - A collection of miscellaneous NCAR Graphics routines.

## SYNOPSIS

NGDOTS - Draws filled circular dots at coordinate positions (X(I),Y(I),I=1,NUM) at size SIZE with color given by the color index ICOLOR.NGGCOG - Returns the latitudes and longitudes of a set of points approximating a circle at a given point on the surface of the globe.

NGGETC - Retrieves values for character-valued parameters set by NGSETC.

NGGETI - Retrieves values for integer-valued parameters set by NGSETI.

NGGETR - Retrieves values for real-valued parameters set by NGSETR.

NGSETC - Sets values for character-valued parameters.

NGSETI - Sets values for integer-valued parameters.

NGSETR - Sets values for real-valued parameters.

NGGSOG - Returns the latitudes and longitudes of six points defining a five-pointed star at a given point on the surface of the globe.

NGPICT - Effects a break in the picture drawing sequence in a FORTRAN code using NCAR GKS. The actions taken depend on whether the designated workstation is a metafile or an output/input workstation. An option is provided for prompting the user when an output/input workstation is ready and waiting after a pause.

NGPSWK - Returns an integer workstation type for NCAR GKS PostScript workstation types.

NGRITD - Given the coordinates of a point, this routine performs a rotation of that point about a specified axis by a specified angle.

NGWSYM - Draws a symbol from the standard WMO/NOAA meteorological fonts by reference to the font name and symbol number within that font.
