Subject: Re: Solution: Graph: counting output pages

I suppose you're answering the question "how do I put the page number on a
graph". This wasn't what I was looking for (assume the user can count),
but rather: what graphs did I print, and in what order?
Being 1). lazy, and 2). the inheritor of a number of reporting programs
which have any number of methods of producing graphs (macros, BY
variables, the like), I'm looking for a fix to add post hoc, which can be
applied once (after graph procedures have run), and which won't require
significant maintenance down the road. Paginating output is not a
requirement (though it would be a nice touch).
Where I beginning from a clean slate, I would write my program to generate
graphs to catalog(s) (multiple if, say, some of the output were to be
printed and some not), then GREPLAY the graphs I wanted to print.
Ideally, this would be done using a macro which could add annotations,
pagination, and the like -- tasks I feel are better suited for print-time
specification than graph-generation time specification. This would allow
for things like choosing 1 , 2, 4, or more, plots per sheet, global vs.
local titles, inclusion or exclusion of specified plots, and generally,
better control over final output.
