Parameter: Plot pens for W.Fs.

Full name: Plotter pen assignments for raw W.F. display
Parameter type: character string, Size: up to 79 characters
Initial value: not set

Affects: Raw waveform display

This parameter allows you to override the "Data Pen" for specific waveforms in the "Raw waveform display". If set, it consists of one or more "wflist = penlist" assignments, separated by semicolons. The "wflist" is a list of waveform numbers, much like the "Raw W.F. # list" parameter, and the "penlist" is a list of plotter pen numbers.

A list consists of waveform or pen numbers separated by a single comma, or by one or more spaces. A range can be given as two numbers separated by a hyphen or colon. For example:

    0, 11,13-15 4 7:10

would select waveforms 0, 11, 13, 14, 15, 4, 7, 8, 9 and 10, in that order. Repetitions are allowed in either list, but the last pen number assigned to a given waveform number is the one that is used. If the penlist is shorter than the corresponding wflist, the penlist will be reused as many times as needed. For example, "1=4;4-7=5-8;8-10=4-6;0=7" and "1,4-10,0 = 4-8" are equivalent. In the simplest case, the penlist is a single number, causing that pen number to be used for all the waveforms to which it is assigned.

You can also use the word "All" for either list, meaning all waveform numbers or all pen numbers in ascending order. Finally, the "wflist" and "=" sign can be omitted, implying "All =", so if you simply give a list of pen numbers, they are assigned to all waveforms in ascending order of waveform number. No more than 16 numbers can be given in any list.
