Hello all,
I've begun investigating ploticus for use in a java based web application. I have a test app that executes ploticus to produce a graph based on a script called "myLines.htm". I'm having difficulty specifying an output file. I want to define a gif name, but am finding that the resulting file takes the default (ie "myLines.gif"), regardless of the specified output file.
However, if I simply execute ploticus via a batch file in a windows 98 dos session, the gif file is produced as required (ie "defName.gif");
The command line java code and script file follow. Any comments much
appreciated. - thanks - Rowan
