NAME

       plmtex - Write text relative to viewport boundaries

SYNOPSIS

       plmtex(side, disp, pos, just, text)

DESCRIPTION

       Writes  text  at  a  specified  position relative to the viewport boundaries.  Text may be
       written inside or outside the viewport, but is clipped at  the  subpage  boundaries.   The
       reference  point  of  a  string  lies  along a line passing through the string at half the
       height of a capital letter.  The position of  the  reference  point  along  this  line  is
       determined  by  just,  and the position of the reference point relative to the viewport is
       set by disp and pos.

       Redacted form:  General: plmtex(side, disp, pos, just, text) Perl/PDL:  plmtex(disp,  pos,
       just, side, text)

       This function is used in examples 3,4,6-8,11,12,14,18,23,26.

ARGUMENTS

       side (const char *, input)
              Specifies  the  side  of  the  viewport  along which the text is to be written. The
              string must be one of: b: Bottom of viewport, text written parallel to  edge.   bv:
              Bottom  of  viewport,  text  written at right angles to edge.  l: Left of viewport,
              text written parallel to edge.  lv: Left of viewport, text written at right  angles
              to  edge.   r:  Right  of  viewport,  text  written parallel to edge.  rv: Right of
              viewport, text written at right angles to edge.  t: Top of viewport,  text  written
              parallel to edge.  tv: Top of viewport, text written at right angles to edge.

       disp (PLFLT, input)
              Position  of  the  reference  point of string, measured outwards from the specified
              viewport edge in units of the current character height.  Use negative disp to write
              within the viewport.

       pos (PLFLT, input)
              Position  of the reference point of string along the specified edge, expressed as a
              fraction of the length of the edge.

       just (PLFLT, input)
              Specifies the position of the string relative to its reference point.  If  just=0.,
              the  reference  point  is  at  the  left  and if just=1., it is at the right of the
              string.  Other values of just give intermediate justifications.

       text (const char *, input)
              The string to be written out.
