NAME

       plstyl - Set line style

SYNOPSIS

       plstyl(nels, mark, space)

DESCRIPTION

       This sets up the line style for all lines subsequently drawn.  A line consists of segments
       in which the pen is alternately down and up. The lengths of these segments are  passed  in
       the  arrays  mark  and space respectively.  The number of mark-space pairs is specified by
       nels.  In order to return the line style to the default continuous  line,  plstyl(3plplot)
       should be called with nels=0.(see also pllsty(3plplot))

       Redacted form: plstyl(mark, space)

       This function is used in examples 1,9,14.

ARGUMENTS

       nels (PLINT, input)
              The  number of mark and space elements in a line.  Thus a simple broken line can be
              obtained by setting nels=1.  A continuous line is specified by setting nels=0.

       mark (PLINT *, input)
              Pointer to array with the lengths of the segments during which  the  pen  is  down,
              measured in micrometers.

       space (PLINT *, input)
              Pointer  to  array  with  the  lengths  of the segments during which the pen is up,
              measured in micrometers.
