Abstract: This package contains the following five programs:
TABTST It tests Digital Equipment Corporation's
DIGIT01-Tablet in Remote-Mode.
DIGIT1 It can digitize x/t-records of e.g. measured data.
DIAPL1 It plots the data produced by DIGIT1 on a
DIGIT3 It can digitize structural pictures like flowcharts.
DIAPL3 It plots the data produced by DIGIT3 on a
Digital Equipment Corporation's tablet DIGIT01 (Bit-Pad-One
type) can easily be used to make X/T-Recorder measuring-data
on paper available for computing. Furthermore, e.g.
flowcharts outlined by hand can be digitized and so be
prepared for use in papers. All digitized data can be
plotted in a selectable form using a HPGL-Plotter
Two subroutines are used to service the tablet. TABGET is
used to read the tablet's datastream. DIGITZ converts the
digitized positional data to centimeter-pairs relative to
the origin in the lower left corner.
The tablet can be connected to the Professional's Printer or
The digitized data is saved in disk-files. To distinguish
the data produced by the tasks DIGITx, different
data-structures (file-types) are used for saving.
The two plot-programs included enable the user to select
freely, picture size and origin of the pictures. The plotter
used to test the programs was the HP7475A.
