TEST Command

Toggle the Test Setting in the Options Menu

TEst [ OFf | ON ]

TEST the geometry model for regions of undefined and over-defined space (TEST ON ) or not (OFF ). The default mode is OFF.

The current setting is reported if no argument is given.

For ray-traced plots (COLOR and ETCH ), poorly defined spatial volumes are drawn with the error color (default RED). The error pixel has priority over regular nontransparent pixels. As usual, only nontransparent cells are displayed where errors are not present.

For line plots (DRAW and RDRAW ), the transparency table is ignored, and all space is drawn as transparent except where errors are detected. TEST ON requires TRACE ON in line drawing mode.

After the plot is completed, the test results are reported. If errors were detected, error messages may be found in file errfile.txt.
