This command sets the coordinates for clipping the plot area for display and draw commands. The four arguments xlo, xhi, ylo, yhi are the clipping coordinates in real page inches.

Usage Notes

  1. The default clipping region is the area specified by the set parea command. set clip overrides this default.

  2. Every time a display command is executed, GrADS sets the clipping area to the region specified by set parea or set clip, draws the graphic, then resets the clipping region to the entire page.

  3. The clipping region is reset to the default by entering clear or display.
