Version 3.0 of PLPLOT PLPLOT is a library of C functions that are useful for scientific plotting. The PLPLOT library can be used to create standard x-y plots, semilog plots, log-log plots, contour plots, 3D plots, mesh plots, bar charts and pie charts. Multiple graphs (of the same or different sizes) may be placed on a single page with multiple lines in each graph. Different line styles, widths and colors are supported. A virtually infinite number of distinct area fill patterns may be used. There are almost 2000 characters in the extended character set. This includes four different fonts, the Greek alphabet and a host of mathematical, musical, and other symbols. The fonts can be scaled to any size for various effects. To create a library compatible with your compiler/system you need to go to the appropriate directory (Amiga, UNIX, NeXT) and follow the directions in the README file there. This version (3.0) is not completely compatible with previous releases. The font files have changed and the 3D and contour routines and their arguments have changed. (Two dimensional arrays now need to be in FLOAT **A form. This requires a little more space for the additional pointers, but is considerably faster.)
