GRAFX - A GRAphics FORTRAN eXtension library for the PC
Distribution Diskette Contents and Installation
README.DOC - This file! The files in the GRAFX.ARC are in ARC format. It
F77L.LIB - contains the routines in library format for selective
linking with Lahey F77L V3.0. Invocation is done via the included
batch command GLNK.BAT.
LP77.LIB - contains the routines in library format for selective
linking with Lahey Personal FORTRAN (LP77) V2.0. Invocation is done
via the included batch command GLNK.BAT.
XXXX.LIB - call: We will provide a library for any PC FORTRAN 77
compiler. The GRAFX library was created to help you.
GLNK.BAT - a batch command to link files with the GRAFX library.
GRAFX.DOC - gives a description of the GRAFX library and
NOTES.DOC - Programmers notes on subroutine usage. Notes gives a
description of each routine included in the library with the proper
ACLS.COM - is a command which resets to alpha mode if your
application terminates in graphic mode and can't be cleared by the
DOS CLS command.
GRAFCOM.ICL - include file of labelled common used by GRAFX
PHYSCON.ICL - include file of physical constants used by GRAFX
Several illustrative example FORTRAN 77 programs are included to demonstrate
usage. The sample programs are:
EXAMPLE - a driver for the example routines
CSAT - XYPLOT (graphs satellite communication data)
SMOTH - TPLOT (a signal processing low pass filter)
SFIT - MULPLOT (linear least squares fit)
STAT - HIST (histogram of a random number generator)
VIEW9 - illustrates multiple views and mid-level routines
LINES - illustrate line drawing modes
EXAMPLE.EXE - An executable demo of the example routines.
EXAMPLE.BAT - compiles, links, and runs the example programs. Invoke with the 3
library you want to use (e.g. EXAMPLE F77L). The selected library is renamed
to GRAFX.LIB. Delete or rename the execuable to run this batch file.
INSTALLATION Installation should be accomplished as follows:
MD \GRAFX CREATE THE GRAFX DIRECTORY
CD \GRAFX CHANGE DIRECTORIES
COPY A:*.* COPY FILES FROM DISTRIBUTION DISKETTE
EXAMPLE XXXX COMPILE, LINK, & RUN EXAMPLES AND RENAME XXXX.LIB
(where XXXX is F77L or LP77)
Delete the unwanted libraries.
REQUIREMENTS: The library was developed and tested with MS-DOS Version 3.10
and requires a CGA card. The use of a numeric coprocessor is optional, but
