             width=   plotting keyword  
     selects line width.  Valid values are positive floating point numbers  
     giving the line thickness relative to the default line width of one  
     half point, width= 1.0.

             window, n, display="host:server.screen", dpi=100/75, wait=0/1,  
                        private=0/1, hcp="hcp_filename", dump=0/1,

     select window N as the current graphics output window.  N may  
     range from 0 to 7, inclusive.  Each graphics window corresponds to  
     an X window, and optionally has its own associated hardcopy file.  
     If N is omitted, it defaults to the current coordinate system.  
     The X window will appear on your default display at 75 dpi, unless  
     you specify the display and/or dpi keywords.  A dpi=100 X window  
     is larger than a dpi=75 X window; both represent the same thing  
     on paper.  Use display="" to create a graphics window which has  
     no associated X window (you should do this if you want to make  
     plots in a non-interactive batch mode).  
     By default, if the X window needs to be created, the graphics area  
     will be 450x450 pixels if dpi=75, or 600x600 pixels if dpi=100,  
     representing a 6x6 inch square on hardcopy paper.  You can override  
     this default initial size using the width and height keywords.  
     These settings remain in force indefinitely; use width=0,height=0  
     to return to the default dpi-dependent behavior.  For a dpi=75,  
     landscape=0 window, width=638,height=825 displays the entire sheet  
     of hardcopy paper.  Supplying these keywords will not change the  
     size of an existing window; only newly created windows.  
     By default, an X window will attempt to use shared colors, which  
     permits several Yorick graphics windows (including windows from  
     multiple instances of Yorick) to use a common palette.  You can  
     force an X window to post its own colormap (set its colormap  
     attribute) with the private=1 keyword.  You will most likely have  
     to fiddle with your window manager to understand how it handles  
     colormap focus if you do this.  Use private=0 to return to shared  
     By default, Yorick will not wait for the X window to become visible;  
     code which creates a new window, then plots a series of frames to  
     that window should use wait=1 to assure that all frames are actually  
     By default, a graphics window does NOT have a hardcopy file  
     of its own -- any request for hardcopy are directed to the  
     default hardcopy file, so hardcopy output from any window goes  
     to a single file.  By specifying the hcp keyword, however, a  
     hardcopy file unique to this window will be created.  If the  
     "hcp_filename" ends in ".ps", the hardcopy file will be a PostScript  
     file; otherwise, hardcopy files are in binary CGM format.  Use  
     hcp="" to revert to the default hardcopy file (closing the window  
     specific file, if any).  The legends keyword, if present, controls  
     whether the curve legends are (legends=1, the default) or are not  
     (legends=0) dumped to the hardcopy file.  The dump keyword, if  
     present, controls whether all colors are converted to a gray scale,  
     (dump=0), or the current palette is dumped at the beginning of each  
     page of hardcopy output (dump=1, the default).  (The legends keyword  
     applies to all pictures dumped to hardcopy from this graphics  
     window.  The dump keyword applies only to the specific hardcopy  
     file defined using the hcp keyword -- use the dump keyword in the  
     hcp_file command to get the same effect in the default hardcopy  
     Use rgb=1 to set the rgb color model when you are creating a  
     window on an 8-bit display on which you intend to use three  
     component rgb colors (see color).  This installs the 5x9x5  
     colorcube and avoids having to issue the palette command  
     after the first true color object has been drawn.  
     If both display="" and hcp="", the graphics window will be  
     entirely eliminated.  
     The style keyword, if present, specifies the name of a Gist style  
     sheet file; the default is "work.gs".  The style sheet determines  
     the number and location of coordinate systems, tick and label styles,  
     and the like.  Other choices include "axes.gs", "boxed.gs",  
     "work2.gs", and "boxed2.gs".  
     If invoked as a function, window(...) returns the current  
     window number.
