5. RESTRICTIONS ON THE COMPLEXITY OF THE PROBLEM

   1000 points per signal.
   100  signals can be loaded in the same time in memory.
   20   signals can be displayed on the same plot.

6. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME

The interface program that loads signals in the data-base is the only one submitted in background. The loading time depends on the amount of the data-sets that are given in input. The ratio of 20 signals (of 1000 points each) loaded per CPU second, gives an idea of the run time.

7. UNUSUAL FEATURES OF THE PROGRAM

A) Data-base structure.
a) storage of both experimental and calculated signals for comparison.
    b) Data-set exchange between data-base owners.
B) Elaboration and plotting of the stored signals.

8. RELATED AND AUXILIARY PROGRAMS

TPLOT is given as post-processor of the following programs: EURDYN, SEURBNUK, ASTARTRE, FRAP-T5, RODSWELL, SIMMER, TRACRUF, PHEAT, JOULE.
   TPLOT uses the Tektronix PLOT-10 TCS libraries, it also needs a
machine dependent routine that supplies to it the time and the day in the FORTRAN type CHARACTER*8.

11. MACHINE REQUIREMENTS

TPLOT is designed to be used on a Tektronix 40xx or like terminal. It requires 2024 bytes of disk storage per signal (data-file). The amount of run time memory used is about 15EE98 bytes (hex.) for the TPLOT main program and 19E948 (hex.) for TPLOT loader program.
