# Pict,; Pdim,; Line,; Tline, - HP 48gII User Manual

Graphing calculator.

PICT
This soft key refers to a variable called PICT that stores the current contents of
the graphics window. This variable name, however, cannot be placed within
quotes, and can only store graphics objects. In that sense, PICT is like no
other calculator variables.
PDIM
The function PDIM takes as input either two ordered pairs (x
or two binary integers #w and #h. The effect of PDIM is to replace the current
contents of PICT with an empty screen. When the argument is (x
(x
,y
), these values become the range of the user-defined coordinates in

PPAR. When the argument is #w and #h, the ranges of the user-defined
coordinates in PPAR remain unchanged, but the size of the graph changes to
#h × #v pixels.
PICT and the graphics screen
PICT, the storage area for the current graph, can be thought of as a two
dimensional graph with a minimum size of 131 pixels wide by 64 pixels high.
The maximum width of PICT is 2048 pixels, with no restriction on the
maximum height. A pixel is each one of the dots in the calculator's screen
that can be turned on (dark) or off (clear) to produce text or graphs.
calculator screen has 131 pixels by 64 pixels, i.e., the minimum size for PICT.
If your PICT is larger than the screen, then the PICT graph can be thought of
as a two dimensional domain that can be scrolled through the calculator's
screen, as illustrated in the diagram shown next.
