WXP Surface Plotting

For an introduction to graphical plotting with WXP, we'll take you through the surface plotting program, step by step viewing options and tailoring parameters.

The surface plotting program is "sfcwx".  If you run this program by itself, you will get 4 prompts: filename, region, variable and device. So in order to run this without any prompts, you need to specify all 4 resources:

   % sfcwx -cu=la -re=at -va=all -de=d

This will specify to plot the latest surface data file, for the Atlantic region, plotting all data (station model plot) on the display.

So how does this plot come to be.
