NAME

       plmap - Plot continental outline in world coordinates.

SYNOPSIS

       plmap(mapform, type, minlong, maxlong, minlat, maxlat)

DESCRIPTION

       Plots  continental  outlines in world coordinates. examples/c/x19c demonstrates how to use
       this  function to create different projections.

       Redacted form:  General: plmap(mapform, type, minlong, maxlong, minlat, maxlat) F95, Java,
       Perl/PDL, Python: Not implemented?

       This function is used in example 19.

ARGUMENTS

       mapform (void (*) (PLINT, PLFLT *, PLFLT *), input)
              A user supplied function to transform the coordinate  longitudes and latitudes to a
              plot coordinate system.   By using this transform, we can change from a  longitude,
              latitude  coordinate  to  a  polar stereographic project, for  example.  Initially,
              x[0]..[n-1] are the longitudes and y[0]..y[n-1]  are the  corresponding  latitudes.
              After  the  call to mapform(), x[]  and y[] should be replaced by the corresponding
              plot coordinates.   If no transform is desired, mapform can be replaced by NULL.

       type (char *, input)
              type is a character string. The value of this  parameter  determines  the  type  of
              background.  The  possible values are: "globe" -- continental outlines "usa" -- USA
              and state boundaries "cglobe" -- continental outlines and countries  "usaglobe"  --
              USA, state boundaries and continental outlines

       minlong (PLFLT, input)
              The value of the longitude on the left side of the plot.  The value of minlong must
              be less than the value of maxlong, and the  quantity maxlong-minlong must  be  less
              than or equal to 360.

       maxlong (PLFLT, input)
              The value of the longitude on the right side of the plot.

       minlat (PLFLT, input)
              The minimum latitude to be plotted on the background.   One can always use -90.0 as
              the boundary outside the plot window  will be automatically  eliminated.   However,
              the program will be  faster if one can reduce the size of the background plotted.

       maxlat (PLFLT, input)
              The maximum latitudes to be plotted on the background.   One can always use 90.0 as
              the boundary outside the plot window  will be automatically eliminated.
