NSTX MDSplus Multiple Signal Plotting

Plot different MDSplus Signals on the same plot frame. (example 1 example 2)
When math is performed on signals on different timebases, conversion to the coarser timebase is automatic.

Shot Number(s): (arrows plot shot before or after)
    For tips on convenient shot entry methods, see ShotEntryHelp.html. (search for desired shot numbers)


Enter Signal(s) with tree name, e.g., \wf::ip

Y: (autoscale if blank)                   Plot #

  -> For signal names see the NSTX Signals and Labels page or the MDSplus Tree Search Tool.

Plot Ranges:     X:   Autoscale   from to (sec., points, etc.)

Plot Labels:       From MDSplus   Tag Names   None Full MDSplus pathname

Size of Plot Window:   Horizontal: Vertical:   (pixels)

          Output Desired:  
Numerical Listing            
Plot File:  
None   Postscript   PDF
named: +ext          
Output File Font:  
                              E-mail file to:                     keep aspect ratio same as plot window.

Items below are optional:

Signal Units Displayed:   None     on Y-axis     append to Title    
Median-Smoothing Neighborhood: (Defaults to no smoothing)
Layout of Plots:   # of rows:   # of columns: (Blanks are OK)

Color Indices for Lines:
    (in IDL style, e.g., [20,40,60,80,100] or findgen(20)*10 -- not to exceed 243, or use these)
IDL Color Table for Indices:

Styles for Lines:     (Help)
Symbols for Points:     (Help)
Do not put the NSTX Logo on plot             Display values of all X-axes

Optionally enter values between 0 and 0.2 for the following fractions to adjust spacing between plots:
Fraction between columns:     Fraction between rows:    
Fraction at top of page:          Fraction at bottom of plot:
Fraction to right of plots:         Fraction to left of plots:    

TDI can be used in the signal fields. For math on Signals which are on different timebases, Signal-Math TDI functions are used automatically.

Other Optional LISTING Inputs:
      Limit list to:   points (Default is all)
      Format to use for data list :   (blank is default)

Expert Entry:  
    (enter keywords to the IDL Plot command, separated by commas)
