NAME

       State - A package to keep track of plotting commands

SYNOPSIS

         use PDL::Graphics::State;

DESCRIPTION

       This is a very simple, at present almost trivial, package to keep track of the current set
       of plotting commands.

USAGE

       You create a new object by calling the "new" operator

         $state = PDL::Graphics::State->new();

       Then for each new command you call "add" on this object so that for a call to "line" of
       the form

         line $x, $y, $opt;

       the call to "add" would be like

         $state->add(\&line, 'line', [$x, $y], $opt);

       which is stored internally as:

         [\&line, 'line', [$x, $y], $opt]

       The state can later be extracted using "get" which returns the state object which is an
       array of anonymous arrays like the one above where the first object is a reference to the
       function, the second an anomymous array of arguments to the function and finally an
       anonymous hash with options to the command.

       If you know the order in which you inserted commands they can be removed by calling
       "remove" with the number in the stack. No further interaction is implmented except "clear"
       which clears the stack and "copy" which returns a "deep" copy of the state.
