ncl_tick4 (3) - Linux Man Pages
TICK4 - Allows for program control of tick mark length and direction.
SYNOPSISCALL TICK4 (LMJX, LMNX, LMJY, LMNY)
C-BINDING SYNOPSIS#include <ncarg/ncargC.h>
DESCRIPTIONAll arguments are in plotter address units (PAUs). By default, one PAU is 1/1023rd of the width of the plotter frame.
Note: A call to the SPPS routine SETI will change the definition of a PAU. Such calls are no longer recommended, but the possibility still exists.
- LMJX and LMNX
- (input expressions of type INTEGER) are the lengths, in plotter address units, of major and minor ticks on the X axis. The default values are 12 and 8.
- LMJY and LMNY
- (input expressions of type INTEGER) are the lengths, in plotter address units, of major and minor ticks on the Y axis. The default values are 12 and 8.
- By default, tick marks point inward. Negative values of LMJX, LMNX, LMJY, and LMNY may be used to create outward-pointing tick marks.
C-BINDING DESCRIPTIONThe C-binding argument descriptions are the same as the FORTRAN argument descriptions.
USAGEThis routine allows you to set the current value of Gridall parameters. For a complete list of parameters available in this utility, see the gridall_params man page.
EXAMPLESUse the ncargex command to see the following relevant example: tgrida.
ACCESSTo use TICK4 or c_tick4, load the NCAR Graphics libraries ncarg, ncarg_gks, and ncarg_c, preferably in that order.
