gclose_gks(3) closes the GKS package.


#include <ncarg/gks.h>

void gclose_gks( void );


A call to gclose_gks insures that the graphics package is properly terminated. No graphics calls depending on GKS should be made during the time that GKS is closed. If output to a CGM has been the exclusive requirement of the graphics job, and the SPPS entry c_opngks has been used to open GKS and to open and activate a CGM workstation, then c_clsgks can be used to deactivate and close the CGM workstation, and to close GKS, making a direct call to gclose_gks unnecessary in that case.


To use the GKS C-binding routines, load the ncarg_gks and ncarg_c libraries.
