Index of documented functions or symbols:


DOCUMENT movie, draw_frame
      or movie, draw_frame, time_limit
      or movie, draw_frame, time_limit, min_interframe
  runs a movie based on the given DRAW_FRAME function.  The movie
  stops after a total elapsed time of TIME_LIMIT seconds, which
  defaults to 60 (one minute), or when the DRAW_FRAME function
  returns zero.

func draw_frame
    // Input argument i is the frame number.
    // draw_frame should return non-zero if there are more
    // frames in this movie.  A zero return will stop the
    // movie.
    // draw_frame must NOT include any fma command if the
    // making_movie variable is set (movie sets this variable
    // before calling draw_frame)

  If MIN_INTERFRAME is specified, a pauses will be added as
  necessary to slow down the movie.  MIN_INTERFRAME is a time
  in seconds (default 0).

  The keyword bracket_time= (again a time in seconds) can be
  used to adjust the duration of the pauses after the first
  and last frames.  It may also be a two element array [beg, end].
  If the pause at the end is greater than five seconds, you will
  be prompted to explain that hitting  will abort the final

  If every frame of your movie has the same limits, use the
  limits command to fix the limits before you call movie.

BUG:  If you hit  to start a movie early, it will not
      pause at the end of the movie at all.  You probably should
      not use long initial pauses.

DOCUMENT movie_stats

  prints statistics from the last movie command, or from the
