NAME

       AGCURV - Draws a curve in a manner specified by the current values of the control
       parameters - the primary parameters with default values or with values supplied by the
       user, and the secondary parameters with values computed by AGSTUP.

SYNOPSIS

       CALL AGCURV (XVEC,IIEX,YVEC,IIEY,NEXY,KDSH)

C-BINDING SYNOPSIS

       #include <ncarg/ncargC.h>

       void c_agcurv (float *xvec, int iiex, float *yvec,
       int iiey, int nexy, int kdsh)

DESCRIPTION

       XVEC        (a singly-subscripted input array of type REAL), when IIEX is non-zero,
                   contains NEXY X-coordinate data - curve point 1 has X coordinate XVEC(1),
                   curve point 2 has X coordinate XVEC(1+IIEX), curve point 3 has X coordinate
                   XVEC(1+IIEX*2), etc. When IIEX is zero, the array XVEC is ignored - curve
                   point 1 has X coordinate "1.", curve point 2 has X coordinate "2.", etc.

                   If the value of any X coordinate matches the current value of 'NULL/1.'
                   (default - "1.E36"), the corresponding point is considered to be missing -
                   curve segments on either side of that point are not drawn.

       IIEX        (an input expression of type INTEGER), if non-zero, is the index increment
                   between one X coordinate in XVEC and the next. If IIEX is zero, the array XVEC
                   is ignored, as described above.

       YVEC        (a singly-subscripted input array of type REAL) is just like XVEC, but
                   provides Y coordinate data.

       IIEY        (an input expression of type INTEGER) is just like IIEX, but describes the use
                   (or non-use) of YVEC.

       NEXY        (an input expression of type INTEGER) is the number of curve points - the
                   number of X/Y coordinate pairs to be used.

                   Note: If 'INVERT.' is given the value "1." (in place of its default value
                   "0."), AGCURV will behave as if the arguments XVEC and IIEX had been
                   interchanged with the arguments YVEC and IIEY, so that X-coordinate values
                   refer to vertical distances, and Y-coordinate values to horizontal distances,
                   on the graph. This parameter affects AGSTUP in a similar manner, thus allowing
                   one to plot "X as a function of Y".

       KDSH        (an input expression of type INTEGER) specifies the dashed-line pattern to be
                   used in drawing the curve. (Since the routines DASHD, FRSTD, VECTD, and LASTD,
                   in the package Dashline, are used to draw the curve, it may have its own
                   particular dashed-line pattern.)  If KDSH is zero, the user is assumed to have
                   done his own call to DASHD; AGCURV will do no such call.

                   ·   If KDSH is zero, the user is assumed to have done his own call to DASHD;
                       AGCURV will do no such call.

                   ·   If KDSH is non-zero and negative, the function MOD(-KDSH-1,26)+1
                       determines which of 26 "alphabetic" patterns is to be used; each of these
                       generates a solid line interrupted by one of the letters of the alphabet.
                       The value 1 implies that an "A" will be used, the value 2 that a "B" will
                       be used, . . . the value 27 that an "A" will be used again, etc.

                   ·   If KDSH is non-zero and positive, the function MOD(KDSH-1,n)+1 determines
                       which of n "user" patterns is to be used; these n patterns are defined by
                       the parameters in the group named 'DASH.' - the default values specify one
                       solid-line pattern.

                   Note: The routines EZY and EZXY, which draw one curve per call, always call
                   AGCURV with KDSH = 1. The routines EZMY and EZMXY, which draw one or more
                   curves per call, call AGCURV with KDSH = ISIGN(p,q), where p is the number of
                   the curve being drawn (p is between 1 and MANY, inclusive) and q is the
                   current integral value of 'DASH/SELECTOR.'.

C-BINDING DESCRIPTION

       The C-binding argument descriptions are the same as the FORTRAN argument descriptions.

EXAMPLES

       Use the ncargex command to see the following relevant example: agex13.

ACCESS

       To use AGCURV or c_agcurv, load the NCAR Graphics libraries ncarg, ncarg_gks, and ncarg_c,
       preferably in that order.  To get smoother curves, drawn using spline interpolation, also
       load libdashsmth.o.  Or, you can use the ncargf77 command to compile your program and load
       the above libraries, then, to get smoother curves, use the -dashsmth option.
