Grapher 4, with more than 100 new features and enhancements, is available now.

Golden Software Inc. has upgraded its Grapher TM graphing package with the ability to create 3D graphs and to embed an Excel window directly within Grapher. These features enable Grapher users to create vivid publication-quality graphs with the worksheet flexibility of the most popular spreadsheet program.

Grapher 4, with more than 100 new features and enhancements, is now available at a retail price of $299. Upgrades from previous Grapher versions are only $99.

Introduced in 1986, Grapher is an authority in graphing software and is designed for scientists, engineers and business professionals. Users can convert their data into one of twenty-two striking fully-customizable graph types. Grapher is known for its easy-to-use user interface and for creating professional graphs.

Two powerful upgrades to Grapher 4 are date/time support and the ability to break an axis. Users can now instantly create graphs using dates and times from their worksheet as one of the variables. In addition, Grapher 4 can break an axis to show data using two different scales on one axis. Calculation abilities have also been improved so Grapher users can calculate the area under a curve and add error bars to bar charts with just a few clicks.

Grapher 4 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.
