ABSTRACT

DIPLOT is a collection of reusable components, designed in an
object-oriented fashion.  DIPLOT (Device-Independent PLOT) provides two
low-level packages which define GRAPH objects, one a Raster GRAPH and the
other a Vector GRAPH.  These low-level objects can be used to build
more complex, device-specific, graph objects.

Three intermediate packages build upon the two low-level GRAPH objects
to provide higher-level graph objects that output to character-oriented
devices (via a file), to the EPSON 9-pin dot-matrix family of printers
for dot-oriented graphics (via a file), to the HP series LASER printers
for high-quality graphics (via a file), and to the Tektronics 4000-series
devices and emulators (via standard output).  The character-oriented,
EPSON, and HP printer objects are built from the low-level Raster GRAPH
object and the Tektronics 4000-series object is built from the low-level
Vector GRAPH object.

Several test programs are provided.  These test programs plot sine curves
and roses into files to be output to character-oriented devices, EPSON
printers, and HP LASER printers.  Test programs which output roses and
sines directly to a Tektronics screen are also provided.

All of the documentation for these packages, aside from this PROlogue
file, is provided in the package specifications and test programs.

This is an object-oriented design.
