NAME

       Streamlines - Utility for plotting a streamline representation of field flow data given
       two arrays containing the vector field components on a uniform grid.

SYNOPSIS

       The following two calls are the minimum required to create a streamline field flow plot
       using the current interface:

       ·      STINIT - Performs initialization tasks required before STREAM may be called to
              create a streamline field flow plot. Information about the input data arrays is
              copied into internal common block variables and the coordinate system mappings and
              boundaries are established.

       ·      STREAM - Plots a streamline representation of field flow data, based on conditions
              established by STINIT and the current values of a set of user-modifiable internal
              parameters associated with the Streamlines utility.

       All user-modifiable internal parameters have default values; only those which are to have
       values different from the default need to be set. The routines used to set Streamlines
       parameters are as follows:

       ·      STRSET - Resets all parameters to their initial default values.

       ·      STSETI - Sets the value of an internal parameter of type INTEGER.

       ·      STSETR - Sets the value of an internal parameter of type REAL.

       In general, once a parameter is given a value by a call to one of these routines, it
       retains that value until a similar call resets it.  Retrieve the value of an internal
       parameter by calling one of the following routines:

       ·      STGETI - Gets the current value of an internal parameter of type INTEGER.

       ·      STGETR - Gets the current value of an internal parameter of type REAL.

       Streamlines supports two obsolete routines for compatibility with old NCAR Graphics codes.
       The compatibility mode parameter, CPM, offers a number of options that allow considerable
       flexibility in making the transition to the new version of the utility. When writing new
       code you are encouraged not to use these entry points, since they provide less capability
       than the standard Streamlines interface, and may eventually be phased out.

       ·      STRMLN - The principal entry point prior to Version 3.2, now a front end to the
              STINIT/STREAM interface.

       ·      EZSTRM - Front end to STRMLN: a simpler interface for standard situations, when
              detailed control of the plot is not required.

USER-MODIFIABLE INTERNAL ROUTINES

       The following routines are not to be called directly. However, you may modify them in
       order to customize the behavior of Streamlines. Three routines (STUMXY, STUIXY, and
       STUMTA) are provided to support user-defined mapping transformations. The fourth (STUMSL)
       allows you to tailor streamline masking to your requirements.

       ·      STUIXY - User modifiable routine that inversely maps a single point on the
              streamline from user to data coordinate space.

       ·      STUMSL - Default name for a user-definable external subroutine used to draw masked
              streamlines. The default version of the routine draws any polyline all of whose
              area identifiers are greater than or equal to zero.

       ·      STUMTA - Given the coordinates of a point on the streamline in data, user, and NDC
              space, and the interpolated, normalized components of the vector at the point
              relative to data coordinate space, the user-modifiable routine STUMTA finds the
              directional angle of the streamline relative to NDC space at the point.

       ·      STUMXY - User modifiable routine that maps a single point on the streamline from
              data to user coordinate space.

ACCESS

       To use Streamlines, load the NCAR Graphics libraries ncarg, ncarg_gks, and ncarg_c,
       preferably in that order.

MESSAGES

       In this section are listed, in alphabetical order, all the error messages that may be
       written by Streamlines. Each error message begins with the name of the Streamlines routine
       in which an error has been detected, followed by a dash, followed by the error message
       itself. These error messages are written by a call to the error-handling support routine
       SETER, with a final argument indicating that the error is fatal and that execution should
       be terminated.

       STGETI OR STGETR - PARAMETER NAME NOT KNOWN - x
              The given parameter name (´x´) is not a legal parameter name known to Streamlines.

       STGETI OR STGETR - PARAMETER NAME TOO SHORT - x
              The parameter name ("x") is less than three characters long.

       STINIT - U AND/OR V ARRAY DIMENSIONS EXCEEDED
              The STINIT input argument, M, specifying the number of array elements to use along
              the first dimension of the U and V arrays, exceeds the actual first dimension of U
              and/or V, as specified by the input arguments LU and LV.

       STREAM - TOO MANY AREA GROUPS
              The area map passed as the argument, IAM, to STREAM contains more area groups than
              allowed by the Streamlines utility, currently 64. This error can occur only if the
              mask to area map parameter, MSK, has a value greater than 0, specifying that
              streamlines are to be drawn masked to an area map.

       STREAM - INVALID AREA MAP
              The area map passed as the argument, IAM, to STREAM is judged to be invalid because
              it contains a negative value for the number of area groups. This error can occur
              only if the mask to area map parameter, MSK, has a value greater than 0, specifying
              that streamlines are to be drawn masked to an area map.

       STSETI OR STSETR - PARAMETER NAME NOT KNOWN - x
              The given parameter name (´x´) is not a legal parameter name known to Streamlines.

       STSETI OR STSETR - PARAMETER NAME TOO SHORT - x
              The parameter name ("x") is less than three characters long.

       STSETI OR STSETR - PARAMETER VALUE OUT OF RANGE - x
              An attempt has been made to set the parameter named ´x´ to a value outside the
              range allowed by the Streamlines utility.
