Re: Setting colors for Plotting to PRINTER
After reviewing Dr. Fanning's code, it appears to me that
the following should work for a color plot on all non-screen devices
(or at least the ones where !D.NCOLORS EQ 256) :
To produce a red plot.
Is this correct????
--- However, my PS device (at least) still appears black.
that may be a seperate issue to look into later.
All that aside....
There is a special case for 'PRINTER' where fsc_color.pro
seems to NOT do the TVLCT call.
How is it that for 'PRINTER' a color gets loaded into index 22....
when the TVLCT call appears to be skipped?
This is kind of hard for me to test, since I do not have
a color printer on my development system.
How would the color 22 get set to red for:
c = fsc_color('red',22)
; i think c would be 22 here
Is there any place in the IDL documentation that covers
how to set PLOT colors on non-screen devices?
Is the PRINTER device somehow different from other
