NAME

       plsesc - Set the escape character for text strings

SYNOPSIS

       plsesc(esc)

DESCRIPTION

       Set  the  escape  character  for  text  strings.   From  C (in contrast to Fortran 77, see
       plsescfortran77(3plplot)) you pass esc  as  a  character.  Only  selected  characters  are
       allowed  to  prevent  the  user  from  shooting himself in the foot (For example, a  isn't
       allowed since it conflicts with C's use of backslash as a character escape).  Here are the
       allowed  escape  characters  and  their corresponding decimal ASCII values: !, ASCII 33 #,
       ASCII 35 $, ASCII 36 %, ASCII 37 &, ASCII 38 *, ASCII 42 @, ASCII 64 ^, ASCII 94 ~,  ASCII
       126

       Redacted form:  General: plsesc(esc) Perl/PDL: Not available?

       This function is used in example 29.

ARGUMENTS
