Using the GIF733 driver makes no difference in the way the symbols are
rendered, i.e. they still come out diamond-shaped instead of round (when
small in size). Without the XPIXELS and YPIXELS goptions in the program
the resulting GIF file is 733x550 pixels as defined in the driver. The
picture doesn't look any better and it's too big a size, too. After
putting the XPIXELS and YPIXELS goptions back into my program, the GIF
file looks the same as before with the GIF driver. All round symbols are
The only difference between the GIF and the GIFnnn drivers seems to be
the resulting file size in pixels.
The problem with the GIF drivers seems to be the inaccuracy of the
rendering of the picture by the driver.
Has anybody achieved good results with GIF files from SAS? How?
