Title: DIGLIB. PC-DOS Graphics Subroutine Library

Abstract

DIGLIB is a collection of general graphics subroutines. It was designed to be small, reasonably fast, and device-independent. The software is readily usable by casual programmers for two-dimensional plotting.

  • DIGLIB is a collection of general graphics subroutines. It was designed to be small, reasonably fast, device-independent, and compatible with DEC-supplied operating systems for VAXes, PDP-11s, and LSI-11s, and the DOS operating system for IBM PCs and IBM-compatible machines. DIGLIB/VMS runs on the VAX and MicroVAX series of computers under VMS. The software is readily usable by casual programmers for two-dimensional plotting.

DIGLIB/PC runs on IBM PCs under PC-DOS or MS-DOS. The software is readily usable by casual programmers for two-dimensional plotting.

  • The objective of the manual is to discuss the details, a software developer may need to develop educational movies. The manual is organized in a manner that the user can browse through each chapter of the manual and later, can work on the functions provided in the driver. In the end, the user would be capable of developing the educational movies. The manual is intended both for the end user, who wants to write programs to develop movies, and for the system programmer/debugger, who either wants to extend the capabilities of the system or wants to debug the system.
  • DIGLIB (Device Independent Graphics LIBrary) is a collection of FORTRAN callable subroutines designed with the following goals: (1) easily usable by the casual graphics programmer for 2D plotting; (2) device independent (as much as possible); (3) small and reasonably fast; (4) device drivers are as simple as possible, and therefore easy to write, and device drivers may be written in FORTRAN when desired; (5) maintainable; (6) compatible with RT-11, RSX-11M, IAS, and VMS; and (7) compatible with MACRO, FORTRAN, F4P, FORTRAN-77, and OMSI PASCAL. DIGLIB comes very close to meeting all of the above design goals. Maintainability has been enhancedmore » by using the INCLUDE feature of FORTRAN-IV-PLUS. Compatibility with RT-11 has been maintained by writing a FORTRAN-IV-PLUS to FORTRAN-IV conversion program. Compatibility with OMSI PASCAL has been maintained by avoiding any FORTRAN I/O. Drivers are available for a variety of devices under RSX-11M, TSX, RT-11 and VMS. These include Tektronix 4000 series terminals, Retro-Graphics enhancements to several terminal types, HP 26xx terminals, and plotters.« less
