The most helpful info on the internal structure of the Stata graphics
subsystem is probably Vince Wiggins' presentations @ 3rd North
American Stata Users Group meeting in Boston on 24 August 2004.

net from http://www.stata.com/users/vwiggins

also see my -parea- command for an example on how to interact with the
internal classes to produce a new kind of graph or adjust an existing
graph:

findit parea
