tdline

Draws the projection of a solid line in 3-space (for use with selected TDPACK routines).

Available in version 4.3.1 and later.

Prototype

	procedure tdline (
		wks  [1] : graphic,  
		uvw1 [3] : float,    
		uvw2 [3] : float     
	)

Arguments

wks

An NCL workstation identifier for where you want to draw the surface. The wks identifier is one returned either from calling gsn_open_wks or calling create to create a Workstation object.

uvw1
uvw2

Float arrays of 3 elements each specifying the begin and end coordinates of the point in 3-space.

Description

This routine is part of the low-level TDPACK package, which is a group of Fortran and C callable routines for projecting objects from a 3-dimensional coordinate system having U, V, and W axes to a 2-dimensional projection plane having X and Y axes and/or for drawing the projections of those objects. This can be referred to somewhat loosely as "drawing objects in three dimensions".

Please see the documentation on TDLINE for a full description of this procedure.
