Hardcopy [$] Generate a copy of the plot using the current hardcopy specification. In general, this makes a file that can later be printed. The default PLT hardcopy device for the first use can be set using the PLT_HARDCOPY logical name (on VMS systems) or environment variable (on UNIX systems). After the first time, the "Hardcopy" command defaults to the same device as was specified in the previous "Hardcopy" command. "Hardcopy" produces a copy of what you would see if you reissued the "Plot" command. This might not be an exact copy of what is currently displayed on the graphics device.

Hardcopy ? Display on the terminal the default hardcopy specification.
