NEWPLOT

 

 Graphics M-file preamble to handle the NextPlot property.

  H = NEWPLOT is a standard preamble command that is put at

  the beginning of graphics M-file functions that draw graphs

  using only low-level object creation commands. NEWPLOT

  "does the right thing" in terms of determining which axes and/or

  figure to draw the plot in, based upon the setting of the

  NextPlot property of axes and figure objects, and returns a

  handle to the appropriate axes.

 

 

  The "right thing" is:

 

 

  Open a new figure if the figure NextPlot is "New",

  Clear and reset the current figure if figure NextPlot is "Replace",

  Open a new axes if the axes NextPlot is "New",

  Clear and reset the current axes if axes NextPlot is "Replace".
