NAME

       plstring - Plot a glyph at the specified points

SYNOPSIS

       plstring(n, x, y, string)

DESCRIPTION

       Plot  a  glyph  at  the  specified  points. (Supersedes plpoin(3plplot) and plsym(3plplot)
       because many[!] more glyphs are accessible with plstring(3plplot).) The glyph is specified
       with a PLplot user string.  Note that the user string is not actually limited to one glyph
       so it is possible (but not normally useful) to plot more than one glyph at  the  specified
       points  with  this function.  As with plmtex(3plplot) and plptex(3plplot), the user string
       can contain FCI escapes to determine the font, UTF-8 code to determine the glyph  or  else
       PLplot escapes for Hershey or unicode text to determine the glyph.

       Redacted form: plstring(x, y, string)

       This function is used in examples 4 and 26.

ARGUMENTS

       n (PLINT, input)
              Number of points in the x and y arrays.

       x (PLFLT *, input)
              Pointer to an array with X coordinates of points.

       y (PLFLT *, input)
              Pointer to an array with Y coordinates of points.

       string (const char *, input)
              PLplot  user  string  corresponding  to  the  glyph  to be plotted at each of the n
              points.
