Mathematical Function Plotting Program

A "shareware" program

Member, Association of Shareware Professionals (ASP)

Mathplot allows you to specify complicated mathematical

functions using ordinary algebraic expressions and

immediately plot them. Four types of functions may be

specified: cartesian (Y=f(X)); parametric cartesian (Y=f(T)

and X=f(T)); polar (Radius=f(Angle)); and parametric polar

(Radius=f(T) and Angle=f(T)). Up to four functions may be

plotted simultaneously. Scaling is automatic. Options are

available to control axis display and labeling as well as

grid lines. Hard copy output may be generated to HP

LaserJet printers as well as screen display. Mathplot is an

ideal tool for engineers, scientists, math and science

teachers, and anyone else who needs to quickly visualize

mathematical functions.

Hardware requirements: IBM PC compatible computer with at

least 512KB memory and a CGA, EGA, or VGA display adapter.

A numeric coprocessor is used if it is present but is not

required.

Mathplot is a shareware program. Users are granted a 30 day

trial use. If it is used beyond the trial period a

registration fee must be sent to the author. The

registration fee is $20 for shipments in the USA or $25 for

shipments outside of the USA. Registered users receive the

most recent version of the program, a laser-printed, bound

manual, and three months of telephone support.

You are welcome to make copies of this program and pass them

on to friends or post this program on bulletin boards or

distribute it via disk catalog services provided the entire

Mathplot distribution is included in its original,

unmodified form. A distribution fee may be charged for the

cost of the diskette, shipping and handling. However,

Mathplot may not be sold, or incorporated in another product

that is sold, without the permission of Phillip H. Sherrod.

Vendors are encouraged to contact the author to get the most

recent version of Mathplot.

Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

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

But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
