SincpacC3D General Information Command Summary Quux Software



The NextPt command displays a list of available point numbers in the command window.


Type NextPt at the command line. You are prompted to enter the Next Point Number. The current setting is displayed in angle brackets. You may also type "F" or "U" to see a list of Free or Used point numbers.

Note that if you attempt to set the Next Point Number to one that already exists, you will be warned, and the default value will change to the next-highest available number. If you wish to accept this value, simply hit ENTER. Or, key in a different number, or hit ESC to cancel the command and leave the Next Point Number unchanged.

The image below illustrates the usage of this command.

NextPt output

To start, the user runs the NEXTPT command. The Next Point Number is currently set to 132, and the user keys in 250 as the desired value. The command reports back that Point Number 250 is in use, and the next-available number is 260. The user simply hits ENTER, which changes the next point number to 260. This can be seen the second time that the NEXTPT command is run. This time, we can see that the current Next Point Number is set to 260, and the user keys in 300 as the new value.
