This command creates a new FRAME picture in the graphics database
. The bounds of the
new picture are defined through two parameters. The new picture is formed within
either the current or BASE picture, and it adopts the world co-ordinate system
of that reference picture. On completion the new picture becomes the current
This command is a synonym for

picxy lbound ubound
CURRENT = _LOGICAL (Read)
TRUE if the new picture is to lie within the
current picture, otherwise the new picture can lie anywhere within the BASE picture. In
other words, when CURRENT is
TRUE the current picture is the reference picture, and
when it is
FALSE the base is the reference picture.
DEVICE = DEVICE (Read)
LBOUND( 2 ) = _REAL (Read)
Co-ordinates of the lower bound that defines the new picture. The suggested default is
the bottom-left of the current picture.
OUTLINE = _LOGICAL (Read)
TRUE, a box
that delimits the new picture is drawn.
UBOUND( 2 ) = _REAL (Read)
Co-ordinates of the upper bound that defines the new picture. The suggested
default is the top-right of the current picture.
[0.9,0.6] This creates a new FRAME picture in the BASE picture extending from
(0.1, 0.2) to (0.9, 0.6), which becomes the new current picture. An outline is
drawn around the picture.
picxy ubound=[1.1,0.9] lbound=[0.1,0.2] current
nooutline This creates a new FRAME picture in the current picture extending from
(0.1, 0.2) to (1.1, 0.9), which becomes the new current picture. No outline is
