Abstract: The purpose of the program Plans is to produce a
hardcopy on the Versatec Printer of plots, specifically,
design drawings. (more detailed documentation is in
PLANS utilizes user supplied data files, then converts
the easily organized data files into complicated
graphics output, using Versatec's Versaplot Graphics
Library. Each data file plot is used as a tranparent
overlay. The final plot consists of those plot overlays
chosen by the user.
PLANS offers easily organized and coordinated user
controls of MOVE(s) and DRAW(s) to all position(s),
mixtures of multi-plotting(s), multi-rotation(s), and
multi-sizes with multi-line width(s) of:
. 14 predefined symbols
. 113 predefined character codes
. 6 predefined fill patterns
. All regular multi-sided figures
. 871 user defined figures
. 1000 labels
Since dialog is enabled between the user and Versaplot,
the scale of the whole drawing, and 27 other variables
can be controlled.
Assoc. Documentation: Versatec's Versaplot Operating Manual.
Restrictions: On a VAX, the installer would need to eliminate the
overlays used in task building. Sources to Versatec's
Versaplot Library are not included.
