gmtset(1)                             GMT                            gmtset(1)




NAME

       gmtset - Change individual GMT default parameters


SYNOPSIS

       gmtset [  -C |  -D[s|u] |
        -Gdefaultsfile  ]  [ -[BJRXxYycp]value ] PARAMETER1 [=] value1 PARAME-
       TER2 [=] value2 PARAMETER3 [=] value3 a|

       Note: No space is allowed between the option flag  and  the  associated
       arguments.


DESCRIPTION

       gmtset  will  adjust  individual  GMT  defaults settings in the current
       directoryas gmt.conf file. If no such file exists one will be  created.
       The  main purpose of gmtset is temporarily to change certain parameters
       inside a shell script, e.g., set  the  dots-per-inch  to  72,  run  the
       script,  and  reset  to 1200 dpi.  Only parameters that differ from the
       GMT SI system defaults will be written.  Optionally,  you  can  specify
       one or more temporary changes directly on any GMT command line with the
       syntax --PARAMETER=VALUE; such changes are only in effect for that com-
       mand and do not permanently change the default settings on disk.


REQUIRED ARGUMENTS

       PARAMETER value
              Provide  one  or  several  pairs of parameter/value combinations
              that you want to modify. For a  complete  listing  of  available
              parameters and their meaning, see the gmt.conf man page.


OPTIONAL ARGUMENTS

       -C     Convert  a .gmtdefaults4 file created by GMT4 to a gmt.conf file
              used by GMT5. The original file is retained.

       -D[s|u]
              Modify the GMT defaults based on the system settings.  Append  u
              for  US  defaults or s for SI defaults. [-D alone gives the ver-
              sion selected at compile time]

       -Gdefaultsfile
              Name of specific gmt.conf file to read and modify [Default looks
              first in current directory, then in your home directory, then in
              ~/.gmt and finally in the system defaults].

       -[BJRXxYycp]value
              Set the expansion of any of these shorthand options.

       -^ or just -
              Print a short message about the  syntax  of  the  command,  then
              exits (NOTE: on Windows just use -).

       -+ or just +
              Print  an extensive usage (help) message, including the explana-
              tion of any module-specific  option  (but  not  the  GMT  common
              options), then exits.

       -? or no arguments
              Print a complete usage (help) message, including the explanation
              of all options, then exits.


EXAMPLES

       To change annotation font to 12-point Helvetica, select grid-crosses of
       size 0.1 inch, and set annotation offset to 0.2 cm:

              gmt set FONT_ANNOT_PRIMARY 12p,Helvetica \
                      MAP_GRID_CROSS_SIZE_PRIMARY 0.1i MAP_ANNOT_OFFSET_PRIMARY 0.2c
