After reading the documentation on the web site, I'm still no wiser
regarding text formatting !
In general it seems that when I GPRINT a number of values across a
line (eg in0ave, in-max, out-ave, out-max) then the line up in
columns all nice and neat. If however I omit some of the columns and
pad the preceding field with space, the following columns don't quite
The one I'm working on at the moment has me printing the four columns
mentioned above for two lines, but on the third line I can sum the
average rates, but have to leave the max rates blank*. The result is
that the total outbound average is a few pixels out of line.
All I really want is to just have everything in the legend done in
* If you have average and total for two independent data sources,
then you can add the averages to get total average traffic, but you
can't add the maximums to get a meaningful number. Eg, I might have
one router doing 1Mbps max, and the other doing 1Mbps max, but the
total traffic could be anywhere between 1Mbps and 2Mbps max depending
on how much overlap there is.
