The **setdim** Command

The **setdim** command allows the dimensions of the current plot to
be changed.

`setdim` [*numdims* [*dim* ...]]

If given without arguments, the length and dimensions of the scale
vector of the current plot are printed. Otherwise, all arguments are
non-negative numbers. There should be *numdims*-1 ``*dims*'' given. The *numdims* is the new dimensionality of the
plot. Values of 0-8 are allowed. The sub-dimensions that follow are
integers 2 or larger.

The dimension list must be compatible with the existing plot
dimensions in that the total number of points must remain the same,
and the size of the basic vector (scale period) remains the same.

There is a special case where the *numdims* is the same as the
vector length. The plot will become multidimensional, with each
dimension having one point. There is no limit to the number of
dimensions in this case. Such vectors plot as collections of
multi-colored points. This type of plot is generated normally by, for
example, use of the **loop** command to repeat op analysis.
Additional argumens to the command are ignored.

Giving *numdims* a value of 0 or 1 will set to ``no''
dimensionality, the status of a regualar vector.
