Information about “GRAPHTIME II 1 OF 2 (ALSO 670)”

GRAPHTIME-II is a business and technical graphics system with text and
font editors.  Designed for use with dBASE II/III, Multiplan, Lotus 1-
2-3 and ASCII files, it can also be used on its own with data entered
from the keyboard into the built-in spreadsheet.  Epson compatible, HP
Deskjet and Laserjet printers are supported.

The package consists of six main modules:

~  GRAPH -- 19 types available with up to 10 graphs per screen

~  DRAW -- Full-screen color graphics editor

~  FONT -- Text generator and font editor

~  FILE -- External file input/output

~  TEXTED -- Text and macro editor

~  PRINT -- Printer driver

The graphics editor can create free-form diagrams or enhance a
previously made graph.  You can select arrow keys, joystick or mouse to
control the graphics cursor.

GRAPHTIME-II can be either menu or command-driven, with an emphasis on
ease of use.  All scales and labels are made automatically with manual
override.  A macro facility is included for commonly-used
command sequences and to control slide shows.  Macros can also be
created by recording a sequence of commands as they are used.

GRAPHTIME II is a business-presentation graphics program.  GRAPHTIME II 
does various line, column and pie charts.  The charts can be printed or 
plotted, viewed individually, or set up to run as an unattended ``slide 
show'' on the monitor.  It accepts data from dBase II/III, Multiplan,   
and Lotus 1-2-3, or you can enter data directly.  It has a font editor, 
macro editor and math functions including moving averages.  There is    
even an ``undo'' function.  A Microsoft mouse (or compatible) is        
This version will plot 24 data points and will print ``paint''          
files, but will not save them.

                GRAPHTIME-II Function data generation.

The  Function  generator system operates independently of the  other
GRAPHTIME-II programs.  When the function(s) have been  entered and the
data  created, this data file is then  loaded with the normal FL command
in the GRAPH program.


a. Floppy disk:
Copy the Startup disk (#1) to a new floppy disk. e.g. A:> COPY *.*  B:<Ent>
Label this disk "Function Generator".
Delete any Help files from this disk: DEL *.GTH<Ent>

IBM  PC: Copy the BASICA interpreter from your system disk in drive A:
onto the Function Generator disk in drive B:
e.g. A:> COPY BASICA.*  B:<Ent>
IBM  Compatibles:  Copy the  GWBASIC interpreter onto the Function Generator
disk: e.g. A:> COPY GWBASIC.*  B:<Ent>

b. Hard disk:

1.  Copy  BASICA.* or GWBASIC.* to the GT subdirectory.
   e.g. C:\GT> COPY A:BASICA.* <Ent>


From  either  drive A:>  (Floppy system)
 or   subdirectory  C:\GT>  (Hard disk), enter:

GTF <Ent>    (with GWBASIC installed)


GTFB <Ent>   (with BASICA installed)

This  will run the Function Generator program. One or two functions
may be entered.
Single function: e.g. A(X)=X*SIN(X)
Where  A  is  the function  name.  X is the argument  and  will  be
specified as a range of values.
X-axis will be the X range specified (e.g. -10 to 10).
Y-axis will be the function of X. (e.g. X*SIN(X) )

Double function: e.g. Funct1: A(X)=SIN(X) and Funct2: B(X)=COS(X)

X-axis will be Funct1(X).
Y-axis will be Funct2(X).


When the functions have been entered the program will request:

Function Title:                 (To accept the title shown, press
Y-axis Title:                    <Ent> or type in your new title.
X-axis Title:                    These will appear on the graph.)

A  new  program  will  be  generated  and run  to  request  further
(Note: On a PC-XT this process will take approximately 30 seconds.)

Output File name:___________/   (The name may include drive. eg B:
                                 Do not add an extension as .GTD
                                 is added.)
Number of points:____/          (Maximum for GRAPHTIME is 1024)
Minimum argument:________/      (May be + or -)
Maximum argument:________/      (Must be higher than minimum.)

The increment will calculated and displayed.
If the entry is OK press Y or <Ent>.
The  X and Y data pairs will be calculated and written to the  data
You  may then press <Esc> to return to system (DOS) level, or press
SPACE  to  create  another  file  of the same function(s)  using  a
different numbers of points and argument range.

When  the  file(s) have  been created, startup GRAPHTIME-II in  the
usual way: GT<Ent> or GO<Ent> then select G for Graph.
Use FL name<Ent> to load the data into memory.
The data is in Random format and may be edited, printed or graphed.

GTPRINT.EXE   (Available with registered version.)

This  is a program to convert a plotter  file
(name.GTG) to output high resolution graphs onto a standard
EPSON/compatible graphics printer.


Load  the plotter  driver  (from  DRAW or GRAPH) and  create  a
plotter file of a diagram or graph. During the setup stage,
select Printer instead of Plotter. (Do not use Direct mode.)
When the plotter file is Run [PR], the HPGL printer driver is loaded.
When the file  name  is  requested,  enter  the  plotter  file  name
previously created. (Do not include the .GTG extension.)

Three  resolutions are possible.  Normally use the 960  dot
resolution. (Usually only the text size is affected.) The higher
the resolution, the slower the printing speed.
To abort printing, press <ESC>. It may take up to minute to respond.
You will then be asked for another filename. Press <ESC> to exit.

NOTES: Complex graphs or drawings can take up to 45 minutes on a
       normal XT. An 80286 or faster processor is desirable.
       Pattern fill is limited to that of an HPGL plotter.

Program: GTLINE

This program is called from the DRAW program with the GL command.
It provides an alternative diagram drawing facility by making use of the
IBM/EPSON graphics character set. This allows lines and frames to be drawn
in two thicknesses and many additional text symbols are available.

Blocks of the screen can be moved or copied.

Up to four screens can be joined to form a single larger diagram.
Screens can be saved to and loaded from disk.

When printing, text can use printer attributes such as bold or condensed.
For more details, press F1 key when LINE is loaded.
