MAKFRM

Adds new frames to a McIDAS-X session.


Format

MAKFRM nframe line ele


Parameters

nframe

number of frames to add; the range is 1 to 500

line

number of lines; the range is 1 to 100,000 (default=number of lines in current frame)

ele

number of elements; the range is 1 to 100,000 (default=number of elements in current frame)


Remarks

You can add new frames to a session only if you allocate memory for additional frames by specifying the -e flag at startup or in your .mcidasrc file.

If you run MAKFRM without any parameters, it lists the amount of memory available for adding new frames.

The amount of memory required to add a new frame is slightly more than the number of lines times the number of elements. The figure is slightly higher because additional memory is required for enhancements, stretch tables, graphics tables, etc.

When you add new frames, they are appended to the end of the current frame list. They are not added to the current loop bounds. Use the LS command to add them to the current loop. If the new frames are a different size and you display them using SF, A, or B, use the R command to resize the Image Window to the size of the frames.


Examples
