Nature of problem:
This program is concerned with the visual display of theoretical and experimental results.

Solution method:
A sequence of subroutines is developed based on the Calcomp routines supplied by the University of London Computer Centre for plotting cartesian, log-linear, log-log graphs and histograms.

Restrictions:
The only restriction on the program is the number of theoretical and experimental points to be plotted.

Running time:
A recent application reproduced here as the test run took about 10 s.

Nature of problem:
Some shortcomings in our previous package, namely, no facility for polar plots, difficulties encountered when the data went outside the subject space and the absence of a dot-dashed line facility caused problems in implementing the package on a computer.

Solution method:
Using CalComp routines a polar routine is developed. Improvements in the previous package for plotting linear-linear, log-linear and log-log graphs and histograms are also included.

Restrictions:
The only restriction on the improved and extended package is the number of theoretical and experimental points to be plotted.

Running time:
To generate figs. 1 to 4 of the present paper took about 9 s.
