Abstract : A digital plotting system for displaying character informaton. The character information includes symbols and alphanumeric information and an individual or group of characters may be presented in sequence from any point on a graph. The logic system describes each symbol within its own preselected retangular coordinate grid system from bottom to top and alternately from left to right and from right to left. At the end of each character definition the logic automatically returns the registers to the starting position for the next character. The character logic is compatible for use with a digital plotting system for displaying all forms of graphic information including curved lines, straight lines and characters. (Author)
