[McIDAS #FBA-307750]: PATH command

It looks like the dot at each connecting point is actually
a label for the point (the code that draws the line segments
from point to point simply draws a line).  Setting the keyword
LABEL= to NO should prevent the label from being drawn.

By the way, there is another way to draw on the screen:  the
plot directive of McBASI:

The McBASI plot directive is a simple straight line segment plotter that may be
useful to you.  Unfortunately, the plot directive works in TV coordinates, not
in Lat,Lon space.


Cheers,

Tom
