Inexpensive Timeshared Graphics on the SIGMA 7.
Bork, Alfred M.
This paper gives a technical description of various computer graphics programs developed on the Sigma 7 computer. Terminals used are the Adage 100 and the Tektronix 4002-4010. Commands are Metasymbol procedures which access Metasymbol library subroutines; programs can also be coupled with FORTRAN programs. Available, inexpensive graphic terminals are reviewed. Relatively minor changes are required to adapt the coding to terminals using different graphic coding. Graphics software is discussed, and the applications of graphics to teaching physics is emphasized. (RB)
