How do I turn off the system id banner in output hardcopy plots?
In any task that uses the GTOOLS interface (like SPLOT but not IMPLOT), you can turn off the sysid banner with a cursor command. In interactive cursor mode, try the command :/help for a full help page. You'll see:
:/sysid [yes|no] Include the standard IRAF user/date banner? :/title string Title
The sysid banner includes information from the CL variable "version":
cl> show version NOAO/IRAF V2.11EXPORT
So you can modify the sysid banner by resetting "version" to be the null string or anything you want:
cl> reset version = ""
You can also reset the CL variable "userid" to personalize the banner. This will affect IMPLOT as well as SPLOT plot banners.
