Output


This is directly from the Help page of the Files window (Figure 18):

"An Xprism2 file can be output as a VIFF file, which is the image file format used by KHOROS. It is comprised of a header that contains all of the necessary information about the image file, followed by the data. A VIFF image file may be broken down into an IMPLICIT or EXPLICIT image. An IMPLICIT image contains Z data, with the location information (ie. X and Y axis) implied from the data itself. An EXPLICIT image contains the data as well as the specific location information. A more detailed description of IMPLICIT and EXPLICIT image is provided by accessing the HELP button on the "Input File" pane of the "Plot" subform. The four ways to output a plot in xprism are: To output a plot in any form, that plot must have been previously created and plotted using the "Input" pane of the "Plot" subform, and must be displayed on the screen when you select the output option. If there is more than one plot in the graphics workspace, you will be prompted to indicate which plot you are interested in. If there is only one plot in the window, it is assumed that it is the plot you want."

This is again straight from the Help button of the Postscript window (Figure 19):

"To output the graphics workspace, at least one plot must have been previously created and plotted using the "Input File" or "Input Function" pane of the "Plot" subform, and must be displayed on the screen when you select the output option. With the selections on the "Postscript" pane of the "Output" subform, one can:
  1. Send the xprism workspace directly to an available postscript printer
  2. Create a file, which is formatted for a Postscript printer, to send to the printer with an "% lpr -Pxxxx filename" command, where "xxxx" is the name of the postscript printer, and "filename" is the name of the file output.
The options that are available include: The Postscript output in vector form supports Annotations. Also, Postscript output fully supports all line types, line widths, etc. This is considered Xprism2's quality output."
