PLOT-S is a 2D-Cartesian coordinates plotting tool for MS Windows that creates graphs and manipulates 2D data from input files. This program has been written to display simple data passed through a table from a data input file to produce linear, logarithmic and semi-logarithmic graphs with a wide variety of available options.
For both the X- and Y- axes, one or more columns can be given. For the X-axis one column is used except in the case of histogram plotting where two columns can be used for from-to values. In the case of using more than one column for the Y-axis, the graph is composed of more curves. File values are separated by a comma, semicolon or space delimiter as defined in the relevant dialogue box (SLE, simple line editor for inputting short text).
The program PLOT-S enables general interpretation of the X values, which can be alphanumeric strings as well as normal numerical values. Depending on the user’s wishes the graph can be saved as a JPG file (Graph.JPG) or to the MS Clipboard with optional comment lines at the beginning of the file that may describe the graph title and curve labels, etc. The program also includes a special option for plotting negative values in a logarithmic scale useful to plot the results of the SUSD3D sensitivity/uncertainty code. In this case negative values are presented in a separate graph and are taken as absolute values.
No special methods are used.
Few seconds (by the thousand of points).
PLOT-S runs on Windows PCs and requires approximately 12MB of disk space.
The Plot-S self-extraction executable requires a Windows OS.
