xfig: select many objects at once
I'm dealing with some auto-generated xfig images which have many
thousands of overlapping objects all at the same depth. Were
everything at a different depth, it would be easy to select things in
groups by controlling what's shown and selecting in regions. How
might I select many objects based on some other common attribute (like
The generating program (gnuplot) has some facility for setting depths,
but it requires knowing some very Fortrannish 4-digit numbers that I'd
rather not clutter my brain with.
Xfig files are just text files full of lines of numbers; if there's no
GUI way to do this I'm not afraid of, say, an awk script.
Please CC to me, as I'm not subscribed to the list. Thanks!
