SAL Home DATA Software Packages


GPLOT is a CGM (Computer Graphics Metafile) processor. CGM is an ANSI and ISO standard for the storage of two-dimensional images. CGM files come in 3 flavours, Binary (dominant form), Clear Text (human readable), and Character (more compact than Clear Text, but only 7 bits used per byte) encodings. GPLOT will interpret and create Binary and Clear Text files. GTEX is a companion TeX DVI interpreter, it uses the same device drivers as GPLOT but is much smaller and simpler. The distribution also includes DRAWCGM software which creates CGM files and a HDF device driver for GPLOT.
