SETSPHERE(1) TIPSY COMMANDS SETSPHERE(1)
setsphere - make and load a spherical "box" from the command
setsphere box xcenter ycenter zcenter radius
setsphere is used to define the boundaries of box through
the command line. The requested box must be between 1 and
MAXBOX or an error will be generated. The value of MAXBOX
can be found by using the version command. The box is a
sphere of radius radius centered on the coordinates
(xcenter, ycenter, zcenter).
Once a box is made and loaded it still isn't the active box
for plotting until the activatebox command is used. Boxes
are removed using the unload command.
Boxes with numbers greater than box 0 cannot be made until
box 0 is loaded. Boxes can also be made and loaded using
the makebox and setbox commands. Box 0 can also be made and
loaded using the loadall command.

The volume of the box is not done correctly in commands such
as boxstat and the box is not plotted correctly when
showboxes is yes if the box is spherical.
