Affected version:5.3-svn Platform:


When plotting a quoted line with psxy, having a +g in the - Sq(..):labelinfo appears to affect the style of all pens that are plotted after (not width and color - only style).

Best served with an example.

In psxy_q_with_g.pdf I'm giving - SqD20k:+gwhite(..) to psxy which causes the frame pen and blue line to inherit the style from


If I omit the +g (psxy_q_without_g.pdf), this does not happen.

If you have many calls to psxy -Sq(..), all pens will inherit the style from the last psxy -W(...) -Sq(..):+g(..) command given (I can provide an example of this if wanted).

Using 5.3.3

The pen texture needed to be reset at the end of the quoted line machinery. Fixed in r17958 and I added a new test based on your script to our suite. Thanks for pointing it out.
