Description  Performs a vector graphics operation. 
Coordinates
The X and Y coordinates specify logical points in a logical screen that is the same size in all screen modes with the same aspect ratio regardless of the number of physical pixels. The usual BBC screen size is 1280 horizontal logical pixels by 1024 vertical logical pixels.
Plot commands
The plot command is a bitmap indicating what action to perform.
