** For exporting spectra to DTSA.   Note:  I have added plus signs before two items in the header to make it readable by DTSA.  This might make the file incompatable with other software that reads EMSA format spectra.  If you have problems, please let me know.

fill / unfill

Sometimes it is useful to fill in underneath a plot:

Default
 Filled

 

The fill routine just draws vertical lines at every plotted point, so it works only if the plotted points are closely spaced..  If thin vertical white lines that appear inside the fill are objectionable, they can sometimes be removed just by making the plot window narrower.  Drag the right edge of the plot window to the left.

 

Example of thin vertical white lines appearing in the fill.
