Golden Software Inc. upgraded Grapher 5, its 2D and 3D graphing package, by streamlining the process of accessing and editing all graph items. Four new graph types in Grapher 5 give users more options to determine which graph type displays their data most effectively. Two other upgrades to Grapher 5 are the ability to move plot labels using the mouse to eliminate overlapping and unreadable plot labels, and the ability to rotate 3D graphs interactively. These enhanced options allow users to more easily customize the appearance of their graphs. Users can also fully customize any toolbar by adding frequently used Grapher commands to any of the toolbars or removing unused commands from any of the toolbars. Grapher 5 is fully compatible with other software. It imports and exports data files in all popular formats, and its functionality can be integrated with any ActiveX Automation-compatible software. Visual Basic, C++ and Perl scripts can be used to call Grapher to automate repetitive functions. (Golden Software, Golden, Colo.)
