What is Next?

This section is the "dream" improvement area. Sometime in the
future these ideas MAY make it into TRAKSAT. I have always kept
an open mind when it comes to improvements especially when the
ideas come from registered users. Please take the time to express
your ideas and suggestions to improve TRAKSAT.

*********************************************************************
* REMEMBER THAT REGISTERING TRAKSAT WILL HELP KEEP THE IMPROVEMENTS *
* COMING! *

Improve the star background plot as not to erase the screen but just
update it. Polar projections also.

Add online help for some areas, improve documentation.

Add support for laser printers. (NOW IN REGISTERED COMMERCIAL VERSIONS)

Add a save screen to PCX, GIF, etc. files.

Add sun terminator to 3-d plots.
