5/3/93 Dear Mathgroupers, Sorry to bother you twice in one day but... * Is the ContourSmoothing option for ContourGraphics, ListContourPlot etc, incorrectly documented in the big black book ? This states (p.771 Ed.2) "ContourSmoothing -> None specifies that no smoothing should be done, and each contour should consist of straight segments between successive grid lines. ContourSmoothing->n specifies that contour lines should be found by dividing each grid square n times in each direction. ... ContourSmoothing->Automatic is equivalent to ContourSmoothing->4 " I looked at Options[ContourGraphics] it gives ContourSmoothing->True ^^^^ * what does this do ? OK, it's a rhetorical question ;-) * what are the alternative options ? I tried ContourSmoothing->10 and got an error message "ContourSmoothing::ctnsm: -- Message text not found -- (10)" * what has happened to this option ? * how can I control the interpolation used to smooth the contour plot ? Any ideas ? Simon Chandler Hewlett-Packard Ltd (CPB) Filton Road Stoke Gifford Bristol BS12 6QZ U.K. Tel: 0272 228109 Fax: 0272 236091 email: simonc%hpcpbla.bri.hp.com at hplb.hpl.hp.com
