Other things to know

-All lines in a same file are of the same width and color

-The first letters of the filename are used by the program:

--"L" means a line file, "F" means a filled area or polygon file

--"L2" will be drawn on top of "L1"

--In "F2M", the third letter "M" is reserved for transparent polygons

--As example: "F1X-Lakes01.plt", "F2M-Cities01.plt", "L3X-Secondary_roads01.plt", "L4X-Main_roads01.plt", etc
