NAME

overlay - Plots the specified UNIX plot_file in the MGED display.

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

overlay {plot_file} [name]

DESCRIPTION

Plots the specified UNIX plot_file in the MGED display. Phony object names are created for each part of the plot file that is in a unique color. The names are created by adding a color to the specified name, or to “_PLOT_OVER” if no name is provided. The color suffix is built by converting the RGB color to a six-digit hex number. Each color corresponds to 2 hex digits, so that white becomes "ffffff," red becomes "ff0000," green is "00ff00," etc.

EXAMPLES

The example shows the use of the overlay command to plot a specified UNIX plot file in the MGED display.

Example 1. Plot a UNIX plot file in the MGED display.

mged>overlay plot.upl tmp

Plots the UNIX plot file plot.upl in the MGED display, using tmp as the base for the phony object names.
