I don't have a good answer for using /pattern, but I do have an alternative way to do this kind of thing, and it'll work fine with any of the graphics modes.
Define a set of points on a grid, based either on the grid of the variable being plotted, or a coarser or finer grid on the same region, and plot the points using PLOT/VS/SYMBOL=dot, or another shape. Here's a simple example:
See what you think.
I imagine another idea might be to make a large gif and convert it to eps using third-party software.

Hi All, maybe this question has already been addresses, but I didn't find any working solution. I create a map and then stipples with the command: shade/ov/pal=black/nolab/pat=tiny_grid mask How can I save the resulting plot in high quality eps? Saving the map in gif works fine, but when I use Fprint -o Map.eps -p portrait -R metafile.plt all the stipples are messy. Any advice? Thanks, Markus
