Review (ELBUG)

This pack consists of a set of very useful programs and procedures, originally written for the BBC Micro and now adapted for the Electron. Useful explanations of the techniques involved were also published as books with the same titles for 7.50 each.


The GRAPHS AND CHARTS package allows you to produce most types of graph or chart you are ever likely to use, e.g. bar charts, xy graphs, curve or function plotting, pie charts, 3D curves, 2D contour maps, 3D contour maps and surfaces.


The programs are stand-alone units and are useful in, say, educational applications, for producing velocity-time graphs, distribution graphs, colony count charts, etc, or for teaching the use of different methods for displaying data.


The procedures can all be included in your own programs for more specific applications. Rating: ****
