[G-4] relativesize -- Choices for sizes of objects

Syntax

relativesize Description ------------------------------------------------------------------------- # specify size; size 100 = minimum of width and height of graph; # must be >= 0, depending on context

*# specify size change via multiplication; *1 means no change, *2 twice as large, *.5 half; # must be >= 0, depending on context ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Negative sizes are allowed in certain contexts, such as for gaps; in other cases, such as the size of symbol, the size must be nonnegative, and negative sizes, if specified, are ignored.

Examples:

example Description ------------------------------------------------------------------------- msize(2) make marker diameter 2% of g msize(1.5) make marker diameter 1.5% of g msize(.5) make marker diameter .5% of g msize(*2) make marker size twice as large as default msize(*1.5) make marker size 1.5 times as large as default msize(*.5) make marker size half as large as default

xsca(titlegap(2)) make gap 2% of g xsca(titlegap(.5)) make gap .5% of g xsca(titlegap(-2)) make gap -2% of g xsca(titlegap(-.5)) make gap -.5% of g xsca(titlegap(*2)) make gap twice as large as default xsca(titlegap(*.5)) make gap half as large as default xsca(titlegap(*-2)) make gap -2 times as large as default xsca(titlegap(*-.5)) make gap -.5 times as large as default ------------------------------------------------------------------------- where g = min(width of graph, height of graph)

Description

A relativesize specifies a size relative to the graph (or subgraph) being drawn. Thus as the size of the graph changes, so does the size of the object.

Remarks

relativesize is allowed, for instance, as a textsizestyle or a markersizestyle -- see [G-4] textsizestyle and [G-4] markersizestyle -- and as the size of many other things, as well.

Relative sizes are not restricted to being integers; relative sizes of .5, 1.25, 15.1, etc., are allowed.
