Window based graphics are available in XLISP-STAT on a workstation
running the X11 window system. Graphics under X11 are
fairly similar to Macintosh graphics as documented in this tutorial. A
few points to note:
Plot menus are popped up using a menu button in the top right corner
of a plot.
In plot interaction you can use any of the mouse buttons. Normally
clicking any button in a plot unselects all selected points. To extend
a selection, or have a rotating plot continue rotating after the
button is released, hold down the shift key as you press any mouse
How plot windows are opened in response to a graphics command depends
on the window manager you are using. Under uwm, the default
window manager on many systems, a little corner will appear which you
can use to choose the position of your plot window.
Slider dialog items are the only items that assume a three button
mouse. In the central part of the slider the right button increases
and the left button decreases the slider value. The middle button
drags the thumb indicator.
Postscript images of plots can be saved by selecting the Save
to File item on a plot menu. The postscript file can then be printed
using a standard printing command.
