The Graphics System Implementor's Guide

The system plot package is used to perform low-level graphics tasks, such as scaling, line drawing, and character drawing. It is written with the goal of being as fast and small as possible while constrained to provide adequate sophistication to support various scientific plotting requirements. It has been made portable so as to provide a common graphics interface on all computers at NCAR. This also allows this interface to be implemented at many other installations. The system plot package produces a high-level device-independent instruction set to support various plotters at NCAR. This instruction set can be interfaced to virtually all line drawing plotters.
