|pl-tek [-e] [-v] < file.pl [> file.tek]|
pl-tek converts an extended UnixPlot file to a Tektronix 4014 command stream suitable for viewing on a Tektronix display, or a Tektronix-compatible emulator. The (binary) Tektronix command stream is written to stdout.
The -e option expands the drawing area on the Tektronix to the full 4096x4096, which is more than a real Tektronix can display. It it not known if this feature is useful.
The -v option turns on verbose mode, and each command is logged to stderr. Occasionally useful for debugging Tektronix emulator problems, but is very verbose.
To send a Unix-plot to an Imagen printer, this command can be used:
pl-tek < file.pl | ipr -Ltektronix -q im101
All UnixPlot line types are supported.
If no UnixPlot space directive is seen, the default space ranges from (-32767, -32767) to (32767, 32767).
Circle and arc directives are not supported.
