Name

orbplot - plot an orbit

Synopsis

orbplot in=orbit [parameter=value]

Description

orbplot will plot an orbit. See also snapplot(1NEMO) , which has a similar user interface.

Parameters

The following parameters are recognized in any order if the keyword is also given:
in=in-file
Input file, which must be an orbit(5NEMO) . [No default].
times=time-range
Only plot the range of times within time-range, which is of the form "tstart:tend". [default: all].
nplot=number
The stride through the data of the plotted points [default: 1].
xvar=x-expression
The value of x-expression is plotted along the X axis. x-expression is a real-valued C language expression over the real values x, y, z, vx, vy, vz, phi, t and thge integer value i. See also snapplot(1NEMO) . [Default: x]. (not implemented)
xlabel=x-axis-label
Label for the X-axis. [default: expression used for xvar].
xrange=x-axis-range
Range of values for the X axis, specified as a pair of numbers separated by a colon [default: -2.0:2.0].
yvar=y-expression
See above. The default is y. (not implemented)
ylabel=y-axis-label
See above.
yrange=y-axis-range
See above.
visib=expression
Determines the visibility of points. expression is an integer expression in the above variables; only points with non-zero values are plotted. [default: 1]. (not implemented)
psize=expression
Determines the points type and size. [default 0]. (not implemented)
maxsteps=num-steps
Maximum number of steps allowed for an orbit. [Default: 5000].

Bugs

For xvar= and yvar= currently only the simple variables real values x, y, z, vx, vy, vz are implemented.
