PS_CHAR_ENCODING

Added by Miguel 4 months ago

Hi
I am trying to plot the ≤ symbol with pstext.
I can see that its code is \243 in the Symbol PS_CHAR_ENCODING.
The problem is that I cant change PS_CHAR_ENCODING to Symbol.
Also in the manuals online there are references to some appendix F that I am not able to find.
Thanks for the help

I think that the appendix F is:

You must use the GMT font number 12 (for Symbol).

Symbol is a font, not a character encoding set. To use the occational symbol character in text, just use ~ to temporarily switch to SYmbol, then ~ to unswitch. E.g.

3.5 @~\243@~ 2.5

(1-2/2)
