110541     FORTRAN/RT-11 Plotting System for the IEEE-488 HP9872S
Plotter  Version: February 1982
Submitted by: J. Docherty, Ministry of Works and Development, Lower
Hut, New Zealand
Operating System: RT-11 V4  Source Language: FORTRAN IV, MACRO-11
Memory Required: 16K  Hardware Required: IB-11 or IBV-11 Interface and
Plotter (HP 9872)  Keywords: Hewlett Packard, Plotting
Abstract: This series of FORTRAN subroutines, the device handler
PL.MAC and the queue programs are designed to provide a
plotting system for use with the Hewlett Packard 9872S
plotter and the IBV-11 IEEE-488 interface, running under
The plotting package includes the following:
. A standard RT-11 device handler PL.SYS which allows
  the plotter to operate in the 'listen-only' mode
. A set of FORTRAN subroutines which may be used to
  create plot files on disc
. A queue package (based on the RT-11 programs QUEUE
  and QUEMAN) which allows plot files to be queued and
  plotted as foreground or system jobs
. Command files to compile and list the source files
  and to create a library of all routines. Also included
  is a file which may be included in the linking commands
  to create an overlayed SAV file
This system has been developed to improve the facilities
which were available using the programs provided as
DECUS No. 11-427. The FORTRAN plotting routines are
based on the original programs supplied by DECUS,
however some may have been altered considerably and many
new routines and facilities have been added.
The handler also allows ASCII files to be "plotted"
directly with the addition of the necessary plotter
commands. This facility is useful for transferring
tables or other text to the plotter.
Notes: PLOTA.REL, PLOTQ SAV - Patched versions of standard
RT-11 programs QUEUE and QUEMAN do not contain source
files.  Complete sources not included.
