Dan

This sounds like it would require a major rewrite of something that was only intended as a stop gap. The native %pl makes no attempt to match "professional" graph plotting software given that is it only a very small part of a vast library.

Here is a link to a new set of DLLs together with the other files mentioned above. This fixes all currently known issues in the release of FTN95 v8.30.

Thank you for the dlls Paul.
... but where are we (that's the royal we) with release of Personal v8.3 ?
it seems to have lagged again after the most recent crystal-ball-er of 'a week or so' (by 'the management' not yourself) which was the weather forecast about 3 weeks ago now I think it was.

P.S. - something I mentioned a while ago, I stil lthink it would be a good idea to put all dll release in one particular location as well as on the specific related post(s). If one misses a post with the dlls in it's a real bugger at times to dig through searching for them, what with the restrictions of phpBB search facility. Suggest to your management and see what they say.

Also, you said, concerning v8.3 and the dlls:-

This doesn't appear to be the case for for %pl known issues, a few of which have already so far poppd up again here (alongside a new one) ...

I haven't systematically tested all the niggly issues identified in the %pl posts these last months. I'm sure others will check theirs and let you know.

I take on-board what you saiy about it being

at all, ever.

But, a few of the very simplest 'basics' still seem to be coming up short, and I know you've said several times that you've had to put things on the backburner bcasue of other priorities, but the lack of tidying up of more of those u'issues already identified is a little disappointing.

I'm dreading (as you probably are) :O) going on to doing a bit of log plotting because of the likelihood of there still being particular issues there too.

Just my opinion of course and I know there have been some good enhancements/fixes implemented which have solved specific issues for particular users particular plots, so all is not bnegative, by any means.

John

I suggest that you post simple code for any remaining bugs.
Just one at a time please - i.e. post one and wait till I report that it has been fixed.

Understood, which is why I used one of the FTN95 examples as a starting point, as in
