1. NAME AND TITLE
PLOTTAB-89.1: Plot Continuous Curves or Discrete Points.
International Atomic Energy Agency, Vienna, Austria, through the NEA Data Bank, France.
3. CODING LANGUAGE AND COMPUTER
Fortran 77; IBM PC/AT; VAX 8810.
4. NATURE OF PROBLEM SOLVED
PLOTTAB is designed to plot any combination of continuous curves and/or discrete points (with
associated error bars) using user-supplied titles and x and y axis labels and units.
5. METHOD OF SOLUTION
The program uses a simple Calcomp-like graphics interface which requires only 3 subroutines:
PLOTS, PLOT and PEN. All characters and symbols are drawn using tables or pen strokes supplied
with this program. Using this method, the program should be simple to interface to virtually any
plotter or graphics terminal.
6. RESTRICTIONS OR LIMITATIONS
7. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME
The NEA Data Bank noted a time of 7 seconds on the VAX 8810 using the supplied sample case.
8. COMPUTER HARDWARE REQUIREMENTS
The code runs on virtually any type or computer from large mainframes down to an IBM PC/AT
and requires a plotter or graphics terminal. The program requires a Calcomp-like graphics interface.
9. COMPUTER SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS
IBM Professional Fortran Version 1.0 was used for the IBM PC/AT.
