Thank you gentlemen -- Jurgen's way is correct. That will make life MUCH 
easier now! :)

Perhaps for the next example of the pstricks user manual might have more 
  examples on using PostScript code? I'm happy to contribute especially 
with things like

\def\Func{x COS}
\psdot(!4 PI mul 7 div /x 4 PI mul 7 div def \Func)

where the dot is created at (4pi/7, cos(4pi/7)). This I learnt from 
looking at one of Herbert Voss' examples on tug.org/pstricks and would 
be helpful to teachers/academics who are drawing curves.
