20040129: available graphic Colors


When running shell scripts invoking McIDAS, I am only able to draw
maps/etc. in about 12 unique colors.  I'm fairly certain that McIDAS has
a much larger palate than that.....any idea as to why this occurs?  My
mcevn command is the following:

Mcenv -f address@hidden -g 32 -I 128 << 'EOF'

When you say 12 unique colors, what do you mean.  Is the map command 
failing?  If not, try using GU to define a new color.

I'll give that a shot.  What I mean is if I use, say MAP X 10 is gives
me a Salmon color but so does MAP X 26.  So the color pallet seems to
just wrap around on itself.  I'll use GU MAKE and see what I can come up

     The sum of the number of graphics levels and the number of
image color levels plus the cursor color and black add up to
256.  The number of colors dedicated to graphics is in the Ucword

Thanks John, Rick's suggestion to simply use GU MAKE <some level> <some
color> worked beautifully.
