Abstract: Plot is an interactive data driven program for drawing
graphs and maps from simple X - Y data. Headings, legends,
axis names, scaling, regression lines, maps, multi color
lines, dashed lines etc. may be chosen. The program gets
its instructions in three ways. When the program is run,
the user specifies the file name of the raw data to be
plotted. They may also include switches or options to
specify the size of paper, that joined points are required
etc. The program asks a series of questions about
limits, titles and captions etc. and then reads the data
file which contains sets of X,Y,P values; i.e. the
coordinates of each point with the pen or plot type to be
used. Additional captions or legends may be positioned on
the graph by X,Y,P, title points.
Simple plots are very easy to specify, only when the full
features of the program are required will the process become
a little more complex.
Changes and Improvements: Test data included.
Restrictions: Operating System RSX-11M, V4.2 or later is required.
