For this particular example these line should look like: ELSEIF P1(1:3) .EQ. "MDE" THEN ! here for mdevice P1 = M$SYMBOL("MDEVICE") In case of problems you could use the MIDAS command DEBUG/PROCEDURE . This enables you to execute the ASSIGN/GRAPHICS and the COPY/GRAPHICS command step by step and to find out where a device name is missing or misinterpreted. Finally, whenever you modify your system please document this. E.g. add or modify some help documentation in the assigngrap.hlq , copy grap.hlq , and the printe.alq files in /midas/11SEP/prim/help . 18

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
