Abstract : The Data Manipulation Package (DMP) is a computer program that was written in the PV-WAVE con-and language. PV-WAVE is a high level data analysis and graphics programming language that is useful in data manipulation and graphical presentations. Unfortunately, to use the PV-WAVE language effectively, the user must be familiar with virtually hundreds of commands, functions, procedures and system variables. The DMP program was developed to facilitate the use of PV-WAVE by non-programmers by providing a menu-driven user interface. The capabilities supported by DMP are subdivided into four categories: plotting, curvefitting, data manipulation, and statistical calculations. Each of these categories has many options that are described in detail in this report. DMP is written to be as portable as the PV-WAVE program itself. DMP was written for use on Digital Equipment Corporation's VMS machines, as well as-most UNIX based workstations. PV-WAVE, Plotting, Graphics, Curve fitting.
