Pen definition

A virtual pen is defined by its conventional number (0 to 15), and its attributes. Currently, the attributes can be

A pen is loaded and defined by command PENCIL Ipen /DASHED Idash /WEIGHT Iweig /COLOUR IColo /DEFAULT
All subsequent plots will be done with this virtual pen, until a new command PENCIL is issued. If the attributes are not given, the previous ones (resulting from the last definition) are used. If a device has not the required capability, the code is ignored. The /DEFAULT option can be used to reset the default settings of the attributes which are not specified. If no pen number is specified, the /DEFAULT option reset all default attributes to every pen.
