Chapter 7: Parameter Requesting Routines

7.1 Parameter Requesting Routines

This chapter describes subroutines that return the current values of plot parameters. All routines correspond to parameter setting routines described in the last chapter or handled in chapter 11, '3-D Colour Graphics'. For a complete description of parameters, the user is referred to these chapters. If a character string is returned, it will appear in uppercase letters and be shortened to four characters. For the language C, if the value of a requesting routine is a character pointer, the pointer is the address of a static variable in DISLIN and may not be freed.
