Graph Plotting

The Tina system supports graphical display of data under a reduced version of the $Tv Tool$ structure. Display of data on this device is supported from the function $plot(int case\_flag, ...)$ which takes a variable argument list of flags followed by associated data. These flags comprise:
      Control Flag   Prameters           Description

This functionality can easily be controlled using the data stored in the histogramming structures. Typical use of this display software would look something like the following example, taken from the $Calib Tool$.

static Tv *graph_tv = NULL;
static double accuracy = 1.0;
static void graph_tool_proc(void)
    extern void *display_tool();

    graph_tool = (void *) display_tool(100, 200, 400, 256);
    graph_tv = tv_create("graph");
    tv_install(graph_tv, graph_tool);
static void epierr_proc(void)
    double *epi_err;
    float   lx[512];
    int     i, n_data = 1024;
    Vec2   *leftpix_get();
    Vec2   *rightpix_get();

    if (leftcam == NULL || rightcam == NULL)
    if (graph_tool == NULL)
        error("no graph tv_screen", warning);
    epi_err = (double *) ralloc(sizeof(double) * (unsigned int) n_data);
    (void) triv_camerror(&n_data, epi_err, leftcam, rightcam,
                         world3d, leftpix_get, rightpix_get, accuracy);
    if (n_data == 1024)
        format("warning only 512 data points displayed\n");
    for (i = 1; i < n_data; i += 2)
        lx[i / 2] = (float) epi_err[i];
        if (lx[i / 2] >= 3.0 * accuracy)
            lx[i / 2] = 3.0 * accuracy;
        if (lx[i / 2] < -3.0 * accuracy)
            lx[i / 2] = -3.0 * accuracy;
    n_data /= 2;

         PL_TV, graph_tv,
         PL_AXIS_COLOR, black,
         PL_TITLE, "epi-polar error",
         PL_HIST_RANGE, -3.0*accuracy, 3.0*accuracy, 3.0*accuracy / 30.0,

         PL_COLOR, red,
         PL_HIST_DATA, n_data, lx,


    rfree((void *) epi_err);
