TickMark example 3

How to reverse and change TickMark style

This example can be created using HLU C library calls, HLU FORTRAN library calls, or NCL. It demonstrates how to create a TickMark object with reversed and log y axis and how to set explicit labels. The names of the source files for this example are tm03c.c, tm03f.f, and tm03n.ncl.


This module discusses how to create this plot using HLU function calls or NCL. A resource file is included with this example, and it is called tm03.res. This file shows how to manipulate the size and label fonts for tick marks.

A detailed discussion of how this example works appears in its source code.

Creating the plot using HLUs

The HLU C program that generates this plot is called tm03c.c.

Creating the plot using HLU FORTRAN library calls

The HLU FORTRAN program that generates this plot is called tm03f.f.

Creating the plot using NCL

The NCL script that generates this plot is called tm03n.ncl.

The data

This plot does not use any external data.

How to run this example

You can produce this example by using a C program (tm03c.c), a FORTRAN program (tm03f.f), or an NCL script (tm03n.ncl). The examples are installed in the following locations:

You can copy this example and run it by typing "ng4ex tm03c", "ng4ex tm03f", or "ng4ex tm03n". A copy of the source file and resource file will be placed in your current working directory. The source code will be compiled and automatically run for you.
