DISLIN Graphics Command Language

The program DISGCL is an interpreter based on the data plotting software DISLIN. All DISLIN statements can be written to a script file and then be executed with DISGCL, or can be entered in an interactive mode.

Similar to programming languages such as Fortran and C, high-level language elements can be used within DISGCL. These are variables, operators, expressions, array operations, loops, if and switch statements, user-defined subroutines and functions, and file I/O routines.

An easy to use interface for data input is given to include data into DISGCL jobs. The format of data files is very simple and useful for most DISLIN plotting routines.

Several quickplots are offered by DISGCL which are collections of DISLIN statements to display data with one command.

A DISGCL manual can be downloaded as a PDF file, or is included in the DISLIN HTML documentation. An online manual is also available as an alphabetical list of all DISGCL commands and functions.
