SAL Home DATA Software Packages


FPLOT takes in ASCII data and creates a plot in postscript format that is ready to print or viewed (i.e. with Ghostscript). C source code is included as well as numerous samples. The input 'command' file is similar to GNUPLOT syntax for describing axis labels, titles, etc. The program has no upper limit for the number of data points. A post-processing program called MULTIPLT will put multiple postscript plots on one sheet of paper. MULTIPLT will also work with GNUPLOT postscript output.
