Tek 4014/5 emulation

The Tek 4014 had a mode called "Point Plot State". In this mode, only the final vector endpoints are plotted. You enter "Point Plot State" from "Vector State" or "Alpha State" with the FS character.

Some Tek 4014 emulators do not implement "Point Plot State" correctly or at all, so you may want to plot your points using normal "Vector State" commands. For this, just send a GS character followed by the point location (dark vector) followed by the point location again (light vector with zero length).
