Mikrocomputer-graphik: Eine Unterprogrammsammlung für by Dr.-Ing. Michael Wegener, cand. ing. Klaus Spiekermann

By Dr.-Ing. Michael Wegener, cand. ing. Klaus Spiekermann (auth.)

In diesem Buch wird eine Sammlung von Unterprogrammen zur Erzeugung von Graphiken für wissenschaftlich-technische Aufgaben auf einem Mikrocomputer mit Hilfe der Programmiersprache FORTRAN und des Graphikstandards Graphical Kernel process (GKS) vorgestellt. Hauptziel bei der Entwicklung der Unterprogrammsammlung battle es, mit einfacher und geringem Programmieraufwand detailreiche Graphiken für wissenschaftlich-technische Zwecke herstellen zu können. Zur Benutzung der Unterprogrammsammlung genügt deshalb ein Mikrocomputer vom Typ IBM-XT/AT mit HERCULES-Monochrom-Graphikkarte und einem Matrixdrucker mit neun Drucknadeln. Alle Unterprogramme werden im Quellformat aufgelistet und ausführlich erläutert sowie in Demonstrationsprogrammen vorgeführt. Hierdurch kann der Leser ihre Arbeitsweise nachvollziehen und erhält einen Einblick in die Technik der Graphikprogrammierung. Die Darstellung wird durch eine weitgespannte Palette von Anwendungsbeispielen abgerundet.
