       plstart - Initialization


       plstart(devname, nx, ny)


       Alternative  to  plstar(3plplot)  for  initializing the plotting package.  The device name
       keyword for the desired output device must be supplied as an argument.  These keywords are
       the  same  as  those  printed  out  by  plstar(3plplot).   If  the requested device is not
       available, or if the input string is empty or begins with ``?'', the prompted start up  of
       plstar(3plplot)  is  used.  This routine also divides the output device page into nx by ny
       subpages, each of which may be used independently.  The subroutine pladv(3plplot) is  used
       to advance from one subpage to the next.

       Redacted form:  General: plstart(devname, nx, ny) Perl/PDL: plstart(nx, ny, devname)

       This function is not used in any examples.


       devname (const char *, input)
              Device  name  keyword  of  the  required  output  device.   If NULL or if the first
              character is a ``?'', the normal (prompted) start up is used.

       nx (PLINT, input)
              Number of subpages to divide output page in the horizontal direction.

       ny (PLINT, input)
              Number of subpages to divide output page in the vertical direction.
