GKS Library

The Graphic Kernel System is a standard software used in graphic applications and in the CAD/CAM. We have written an interface between DIRA2 and VAX-GKS using the standard fortran calls. We suggest to use this library in the installation of DIRA on GPX or X-Window workstation.

In the installation of DIRA with GKS routines you must edit the file:


giving an account of your configuration of graphic terminal and hard copy device

In this file you must describe all the interactive device type in your configuration (a record for device type), and all the hard copy devices. The hard copy can be a remote device connected to an host of a Local Area Network, you must define the complete name of the device: HOST::DEVICE. You must fill the field 'Hard' with a 'Q' if the hard-copy is a spool device on a Queue that require a DCL PRINT/QUE=xxx command, otherwise you fill the field with a 'H' if you use the command COPY to send file on that device. If you have supplementary monitors you must fill the field 'LINE' and don't fill the field 'Hard'. In the field 'Comment' you can write a short message that will be shown to the users in the help. You can use any name in the field 'Name'.
