gmtset - Change individual GMT default parameters


gmtset [ | [s|u] | defaultsfile ] [ -[BJRXxYycp]value ] PARAMETER1 [=] value1 PARAMETER2
[=] value2 PARAMETER3 [=] value3

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


gmtset will adjust individual GMT defaults settings in the current directory's 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. 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 command and do not permanently
change the default settings on disk.


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.
