ROUTING PLOT FILES
Appendix B Sec6.1
Plot Files And Mom
PPLUS plot files are named ZETA.PLT by default (this can be changed with the PLTNME command). A graphics postprocessor called MOM is available to reformat these binary plot files and route them to a graphics device. MOM submits a batch job to BETA$LOPRI or BETA$BATCH. When the batch job has finished, the original plot files will have been renamed from file.ext to file.PLT_HHMMSS, and the plots queued to the appropriate device. A log file with the name MOM_HHMMSS.LOG is placed in the original directory when the MOM option /LOG is selected.
The command is (brackets  enclose optional information):
MOM [arg1 [arg2 ...]]
The arguments for MOM are order independant and are separated by spaces. The arguments are:
[F[ILE]=]file name (default ZETA.PLT)
[D[EVICE]=]device (e.g. TEK, VER etc, default VER)
S[CALE]=scale factor (default 1)
G[RACE]=grace distance (inches, default = 0.25)
W[IDTH]=width (paper width CAL only, default = 11.5)
C[PLOT]="cplot arguments" (CPLOT parameters CAL only, default=NULL)
[NO]ROT[ATE] (rotate the plot, default NOROT)
[NO]CEN[TER] (center the plot, default CENTER)
/[NO]SAVE (save the input file, default /SAVE)
/[NO]LOG (create a batch log file, default /NOLOG)
/SMALL, /LARGE or /TRANS (type of hard copy made, default /SMALL)
File names which are the same as a legal device name (e.g. VER, TEK, etc.) are not allowed. The file name can contain any wild carding that is valid with the VAX/VMS rename command. The default file extension is .PLT.
VER Batch plot on Versetec V80 printer/plotter
TEK Interactive plot on Tekronix compatible terminal
CPY Batch plot on Tekronix 4691 hardcopy unit
CAL Batch plot on CALCOMP plotter
HP Batch plot on HP7550A plotter
LN03 Batch plot on TMAP1:: LN03 printer/plotter
HPT Batch plot on TMAP1:: HP7475
Appendix B Sec6.1.3
1) $MOM question
Will cause MOM to prompt for inputs. If the CPLOT argumentis a ? you are then prompted for the CPLOT inputs.
2) $MOM CTD110W VER SCALE=1.25 ROTATE
Will instruct MOM to create a VERSATEC plot from the metafile CTD110W.PLT, rotate the plot 90 degrees on the paper and rescale the plot by a factor of 1.25.
3) $MOM CAL CPLOT=""
Will have MOM create a CALCOMP plot using ZETA.PLT and cal lCPLOT with the default parameters. If CPLOT is omitted then MOM will prompt for the CPLOT command line (omitting CCFILE).
4) $MOM TEMP.PLT;* CAL CPLOT="/P1=BLK:.3"
Will cause MOM to send all the versions of TEMP.PLT to the CALCOMP with operator instructions to have pen 1 be black ink pen of 0.3 mm width.
5) $MOM HP *.MYPLOT;* /TRANS
Will send all plots with extension .MYPLOT to the HP7550 plotter with operator instructions to plot on transparencies.
