Two sources of vast confusion in reading the C code are these:

(1) the code uses x and y as though they're Cartesian coordinate
variables, but (inconsistently) swaps them around so that "x"
variables usually refer to the y direction in the output charts.

(2) Coordinates in the y direction (whether they are x variables or
not) increase *downwards* (charts are printed row zero first).

There is extremely ugly and confusing code in targetcheck() and
getcourse() where two opposite sets of conventions bump up against
each other.

nomenclature so that coordinate names refer to 'i' and 'j'
directions, as in matrix indices (i vertical, increasing downwards,
