Howdy all! I am wondering something about dimension scales. With dimension scales there does not seem to be any enforced relationship between the size of a dimscale dataset, and the dataset(s) to which it is attached. That is, I can have a 1D dimscale of length 2, and attach it to the dimension of a 1D dataset with length 3. In actual use, what do we think it would mean to have dimension data that are smaller in extent than the data to which they apply? Is there any good way to interpret this? If I were writing a graphics program to plot that data, would I match them one to one, starting at the first dimension scale value, and then run out of dimension data? Or what? Any comments would be useful. Thanks! Ed -- Ed Hartnett -- ed@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
