There are many less or more difficulty things to know to make a quadratic plot in portrait or landscape. The plot environment is described in my publication (german) with lots of examples. http://www.fz-juelich.de/zb/text/publikation/juel3786.html Some examples you can see at: http://www.fz-juelich.de/icg/icg1/idl_icglib/idl_source/idl_html/idl_work_idl_work.examples.category.htm#7 In our environment plot.landscape=2 --> quadratic plot in portrait plot.landscape=3 --> quadratic plot in landscape plot.psflag=0 --> output in window on screen plot.psflag=1 --> PS plot.psflag=2 --> EPS If you prefer your own plot routines then here is a bit of the theory for EPS for a quadratic plot in portrait. device,filename='idl',encapsulated=1,isolatin1=1,preview=0.,$ yoffset=0. ,ysize=29.7 ,xoffset=0.,xsize=21.0,$ /color, BITS=8,/portrait now in norm coordinates the length of 5cm for X and Y Axes must be calculated. then this data must be given by the position keyword to plot. Behind the plot and the device,/close the bounding box is to big. With a command like epstool -b -c -ofile.eps good.eps the bounding box will be set to the best size. hope this helps regards Reimar -- Reimar Bauer Institut fuer Stratosphaerische Chemie (ICG-1) Forschungszentrum Juelich email: R.Bauer@fz-juelich.de http://www.fz-juelich.de/icg/icg1/ ================================================================== a IDL library at ForschungsZentrum Juelich http://www.fz-juelich.de/icg/icg1/idl_icglib/idl_lib_intro.html http://www.fz-juelich.de/zb/text/publikation/juel3786.html ================================================================== read something about linux / windows http://www.suse.de/de/news/hotnews/MS.html
