NAME

       plmkstrm - Creates a new stream and makes it the default

SYNOPSIS

       plmkstrm(p_strm)

DESCRIPTION

       Creates  a  new  stream and makes it the default.  Differs from using plsstrm(3plplot), in
       that a free stream number is found, and returned. Unfortunately, I have to start at stream
       1 and work upward, since stream 0 is preallocated.  One of the big flaws in the PLplot API
       is that no initial, library-opening call is required.  So stream 0 must  be  preallocated,
       and there is no simple way of determining whether it is already in use or not.

       Redacted form: plmkstrm(p_strm)

       This function is used in examples 1,20.

ARGUMENTS

       p_strm (PLINT *, output)
              Pointer to stream number of the created stream.
