This may be slightly off your topic, but I ran across an interesting
thing with line widths. Apparently they are not the same in the gui as
in the command line. For example, I have a function containing
usa(lwd=2). When I select any of the lines on the graphsheet, the gui
will tell me that the line width is 1/3. Tech support says they are
working on getting gui and command line graphics to be more similar.
Meanwhile, just being aware of it makes it much easier to write
functions for graphics that don't later need to be interactively edited.

For those who are interested, these are the results of a little
experimenting with lwd.

Command line GUI
2 1/3
4 1
6 1
8 1
15 2
20 3

Hope that saves someone else some time.
