Who cares? This is an implementation (i.e. an RSI) issue.

I just want to make print outs of what I plot by clicking a button.
That's why I smacked together WPLOT and WOPLOT - it has a PS output
button which is enough for me.





I'm sure there are other codes out there that do the same thing and are
much more sophisticated but this was all I needed. It can't handle log
plots well but I can live with it.

BTW, I'n not recommending anyone grab the above codes for any other
reason than to see how *not* to do something.  :o)
