set hershey on | off
This command, which is available beginning with grads version 2.1,
is a quick shortcut for users who would like to take advantage of Cairo
fonts but do not know anything about font files on their system or do
not want to bother editing the font controls in existing scripts.
'set hershey off' will tell grads to use generic
Cairo fonts that are reasonable approximations of Hershey fonts 0, 1, 2,
4, and 5. Font 3 is the Greek (symbol) font, and cannot be duplicated
with generic controls.
'set hershey on' will return grads to the use of traditional Hershey fonts.
This command 'sticks' until the user issues another
set hershey command, or a
reinit command is issued.
Please read the documentation page on Font Control in grads for more information about using fonts in grads version 2.1.
If your build is not enabled with the Cairo graphics library,
'set hershey off' will have no effect.
