JTraffic Screensaver


$LINE L= <LineList> ; <PathwayParameters> ;

<LineList> == <LineListItem> || <LineList> , <LineListItem>

<LineListItem> == <Simple> || <Simple> - <Simple>

A line is a track on the screen at a fixed position on which movements are executed. This style, with the movements running in fixed positions, was from the first versions of Traffic. The command is contained in the current version for backward compatibility, but it has been modified slightly to correspond to the section structure Traffic currently uses.

Line lists are made up of numbers or intervals, separated by commas (1, 3-6, 8).  The numbers of the lines on which the Movements belonging to the $LINE command are displayed.

If parameters for roadbed, waypoint, foreground and/or background ( W=, FG=, BG=, WP= ) appear in a $LINE command then these all appear on the screen at the start of the program (or Section) and remain there between all of the Movements contained in the $LINE.  In this case the W=, FG=, BG= and/or WP= parameters, which may be specified, are subordinate to those of the $LINE command.

If no W=, FG=, BG= and/or WP= parameters appear in the $LINE command, the parameters for these values specified in the individual Movements take over.  In this case, the roadbed, background, foreground and/or waypoint appear immediately before the Movement begins and disappear as soon as the Movement is finished.

You cannot use the W=, FG=, BG= and/or WP= parameters dividing among the $LINE command and the movement commands. If at least one of them is contained in the $LINE command, the all movement commands discard the W=, FG=, BG= and/or WP= parameters.

The detailed description of the $LINE command - together with the other segmentation commands - is in a separate chapter.
