I am pleased to announce version 7.4 of the data plotting software

DISLIN is a high-level and easy to use plotting library for
displaying data as curves, bar graphs, pie charts, 3D-colour plots,
surfaces, contours and maps. Several output formats are supported
such as X11, VGA, PostScript, CGM, HPGL, TIFF, PNG and Prescribe.

The software is available for several C, Fortran 77 and Fortran 90
compilers. Plotting extensions for the interpreting languages Perl,
Python and Java are also supported for the most operating systems.

Some of the new features of DISLIN version 7.4 are:

 - TeX instructions for plotting mathematical formulas can be used in
   text plotting routines;

 - plotting of isosurfaces based on the Marching Cubes method is

 - lighting can be enabled for shaded surfaces;

 - the PPM format is added to the list of output formats.

DISLIN distributions and manuals in PDF, PostScript and HTML format are
available from the DISLIN Home Page

and via FTP from the server
