Galaxy Advanced Engineering, Inc. presents a migration bridge for callable CA-DISSPLA routines within
your existing FORTRAN program via its high level FORTRAN graphics library Language that is called UGL.
UGL is a Scientific Graphics Subroutine Library for any computing system such as Main, Micro and
Mini-Computers with its given Operating System. UGL presently supports hardware such as HP/UX,
SUN/SOLARIS, Alpha/OpenVMS, VAX/VMS, LINUX, SGI/IRIX and Windows 95/98/2000 and NT or DOS.
GAE Graphics Software Products and DISSPLA Compatibility
UGL-GRAPHICS was developed to provide a migration path with a CA-DISSPLA, GKS, PLOT-10,
CalComp, PLOT88 and DIGLIB (from Lawrence Livermore Lab.) graphics interface in the PC
and VAX as well as UNIX environment and provides the same high graphics standards found
on the main frames using the above graphics libraries. The most common subset of CA-DISSPLA
routine (more than %95) and rest of the mentioned graphics libraries are supported directly and any
particular ones may be provided upon request. If the users have an existing code using any of these
graphics library routines within them, they do not have to change their calls. The bridge that are
built with UGL-GRAPHICS library of Galaxy advanced Engineering, Inc. will distinguish these
routines and maps them to its own routine against these calls for direct porting of the user code to
its new environment supported by UGL-GRAPHICS.
What is DISSPLA?
CA-DISSPLA is a powerful library of FORTRAN subroutines that facilitate data plotting. It was designed
for engineers, economists, statisticians, and scientific and bussiness programmers. This package
originally was developed by a company named ISCO prior to being sold to Computer Associate. Presently
the CA-DISSPLA is owned by Computer Associate.
