SAL Home DATA Libraries


DISLIN is a high level library of subroutines and functions that display data as curves, bar graphs, pie charts, 3D-colour plots, surfaces, contours and maps. It is intended to be a powerful and easy to use software package for programmers and scientists that does not require knowledge of hardware features. It uses X11 for graphical screen output and several formats such as PostScript for file output. DISLIN is available for several C, Fortran 77 and Fortran 90 compilers.

DISLIN for Linux also contains plotting extensions for Java, Perl 5.003/5.004 and Python 1.4.
