3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

SCALPLO is a plot program, designed to plot flux, power and spectrum information. Data exchange between SCALE modules and SCALPLO is via CCCC-interface files. As not all modules can produce these files, there are special routines  supplied with SCALPLO that can produce CCCC-like files. These routines can be included in the code and for XSDRPM, CITATION, ANISN and DOT, the place to include these routines is supplied.

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

SCALPLO consists of two sections. Firstly the preprocessor, which selects and reads the required data. Secondly the plot section which produces the plot on the selected output device.

5. RESTRICTIONS ON THE COMPLEXITY OF THE PROBLEM

SCALPLO requires DISSPLA version 11.0 or higher. The choice of output device depends  on the devices installed.

6. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME

Depends on the amount of data to be read and  the output device selected. Running time will be less than one minute.

7. UNUSUAL FEATURES OF THE PROGRAM

Three subroutines are supplied to  make CCCC-like interface files readable to SCALPLO and it is possible to add them to other codes. Description of adapting XSDRNPM, CITATION, ANISN and DOT is added to the manual. The BOLD-VENTURE module already uses CCCC interfaces files. It is also possible to enter ASCII X-Y data for fast evaluation of simple data.
