Driver for the Xerox XPRESS Plotter

Automatic Plot Striping

If you specify a plot whose area is larger than your defined page size the program can split the plot onto more than one strip. However it warns you before proceeding in case the size you generated was a mistake. If you accept (OK) then the program will generate the strips and send them sequentially to the plotter.

GDSPLOT will give you a preview of how the plot is divided.
