Subject: Change Symbol Size in a GPLOT
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"
I am trying to figure out how to change the size of the symbol
used for a GPLOT. The code I am using is below (although for the answer I
don't think it's necessary). I have 9 functions in my GPLOT and am trying to
find the best way to differentiate the lines in my legend and in the plot. I
first used different line types but in the legend the line types looked so
similar you couldn't tell which was which. For that reason I figured I would
rely on different symbols. The problem is that when I use the symbols the
symbol itself is so small that you can't tell which is which in the graph.
So my question is how can I change the size of the symbol in the plot
itself. Along the same lines is there a way to change the width of the
legend such that the part which displays the symbols is a bit longer? Right
now that portion of the legen is cramped and it just looks line three
