Well, you cannot simply copy and paste from the resulting .grec file, but
you do get an idea where to look for your required option. I usually tend to
employ the dialog box to get the syntax of -graph- commands right, and once
I am done, paste the command into my do-file for future reference...

Thanks Martin!
I keep all my code in do files, and I wonder is there a quick way of 
seeing how changes made in the graph editor would be coded in the do 
file? Most of the time it seems easy to work out, but sometimes I am 
unsure where to put the option. I'm sure I can play around with this 
though...
