You can get a table of the values that are to be plotted typed on your terminal. You can select up to three other parameters to be shown in the table. For example, you can plot TE vs IP and display values of TE, IP, SHOT, and NE. If you want, you can select the points to be displayed with the cursor option instead of showing all the points. If you've selected the type option and the cursor option, then after the graph has been drawn, you'll enter cursor mode. Position the cursor, then enter a character, like space, or click the mouse if you are using a Macintosh. When you're done selecting points, enter ;. A table of values will be displayed on your terminal. See also section 2.6.2 for a description of the dynamic cursor option which lets you show values of a single parameter on the graph.
If the type option is used when you are averaging points, the table will show the averaged values and their errors. The cursor option does not work with averaged data.
The journaling option in PLOT lets you maintain a file of comments that you make after each graph. Both the graphs and comments are labeled with a sequence number. The comments are accepted in sentence mode; they should not be in quotes, instead a RETURN will delimit each comment line. You can enter as many lines of comments as you like. End the commenting with ;. The journal file will have the same name as your table, but with a JOURNAL type. A new version of that file is created each time you run LOCUS.
The DEVICE and the VGDS options will let you change where your graphs go by calling RINITT and AGVGDS respectively. This allows you to send graphs to a file without having defined the logical name plot before entering LOCUS. See HELP SG for more information on plot output.
