That works as well  thank you. After a bit of playing I figured out as
well, that I can set the color palette by plscmap0 in the following way:
.f cmd n #col1 #col2 #col3 ...
where n is the number of colors. That is different from the C API
documentation too, but I believe I remember the Tcl interface docu of
Plplot saying something about this...
