The SAPLOT software system provides a simple means by which scientists or engineers can produce graphical output. SAPLOT is designed to meet the standards of the American Institute of Physics, and to produce graphic output suitable for publications, slides, or overhead transparencies. Careful attention is given to producing high quality axis markings. The SAPLOT software system has become, in part, a file standard. The SAPLOT software takes a standard ASCII input data file, and produces graphical output representing those input data. Finally, SAPLOT is still evolving. It is becoming more portable as new versions are written for different machines, and as SAPLOT to PostScript file conversion software becomes available. It is likely that SAPLOT will continue to fill a need for scientific graphics for years to come.
