Arguments

plot

The plot to be modified.

value

Starting with the first contour less than value, all areas less than that first contour will be shaded with fill pattern pattern.

pattern

The fill pattern to use to shade the given areas.

Return value

plot is returned with the modifications described above.

Description

Starting with the first contour less than value, shades all regions less than that first contour with the given fill pattern.

Note that the shading begins at the first contour level less than value, and not at the specified value. Check your plot to make sure that the results are what you expected.
