matrices of the same size (p,n) (points of the polylines).


vector of size n.


xpolys draws a set of polylinse using marks or dashed lines. The coordinates of each polyline are stored in a column of xpols and ypols.

The style of polyline i is given by draw(i):

  • If draw(i) is negative, the mark with id -draw(i) is used to draw polyline i (marks are drawn using the current pattern). Use xset() to see the meaning of the ids.

  • If draw(i) is strictly positive, the line style (or color) with id draw(i) is used to draw polyline i. Use xset() to see the meaning of the ids.
