    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,

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 ".cgm", the hardcopy file is a binary CGM  
file; otherwise, hardcopy files are in Postscript 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 "".  The style sheet determines  
the number and location of coordinate systems, tick and label styles,  
and the like.  Other choices include "", "",  
"", and "".  
If invoked as a function, window(...) returns the current  
window number.
