Revision 1.2 comments:

I decided to shrink the executable a little bit. I had a hard time trying to
put the printer I took them out for now.

I increased the limit of data points to 1000.

I have included a Parser program to evaluate a function and save the data
to a file. Run PARSER for more info.

I hope to put command line options soon.

Again comments are appreciated.

Revision 1.0 comments :

I took an hour or so and wrote this small program to plot data, using
some old libraries that I had. There is a sample file "data.dat" which
can be used to check the program.

I started working on the screen dump routines but they were going to take
time so I decided to let this version go. To do a ut the prin veribe the
graph is being shown on the screen, press "E" for an Epson compatible or
"H" for a HP Laser printer. If no screen dump is desired press ENTER.
If you see a separation line between each print, disable the formfeed.
The HP routine hasn't been tested...sorry. I plan to finish the printer
routines and also put an option to graph more than one data set at the same

In order to use this program you must have the data already generated: either
thru a spreadsheet and printing to a file or by making your own program to
calculate the data. Save it in ASCII in the form:

x1 y1
x2 y2

If in doubt, check the data file.
If you like this program, let me know....if you don't, let me know also.

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read:
