      Plot circular scales on the laser printer.


Calling Sequence

      make_scale, file


Keyword Parameters


        PRINTER = postscript printer number (1=def or 2).
        /LIST to list control files lines as processed.
        XOFFSET=xn. Scale center X shift in norm. coord.
        YOFFSET=yn. Scale center Y shift in norm. coord.
          View page in portrait mode, +x to right, +y up.
        FACTOR=fact Scale all radii by given factor (def=1).


Common Blocks



        Control file format:
        * in column 1 for comment lines.
        A = a1, a2
          Defines start and stop angles (deg) for arcs.
          Not needed for circles.
          a1, a2 = arc start & stop angles (deg) CCW from X axis.
        R = r1, r2, r3, ..., rn
          Draws arcs or circles of specified radius.
          r1, r2, ... = list of radii (cm) to plot.
        TICS = a1, a2, da,r1, r2
          Draws tic marks.
          a1, a2, da = tic angle start, stop, step (degrees).
          r1, r2 = tic start, stop radii.
        LABELS = L1, L2, dL, r, s, flg
          Sets up labels to be used on next TICS command.
          L1, L2, dL = label start, stop, step values.
          r = label radial position (cm), s = label size.
          flg = 0: to be read from outside the circle (def),
                1: to be read from inside the circle.
        TEXT = r, a, flag, size, text
          r = radius of text bottom in cm.
          a = start angle of text in degrees CCW from X axis.
          flag = 0 to read CW, 1 to read CCW.
          size = text size.
          text = text string to write.
