What is DI-3000?

DI-3000 is an integrated system of graphics software tools. DI-3000 is implemented as a library of FORTRAN-callable subroutines, written in ANSI Fortran for use with Fortran 77 applications. An application program calls DI-3000 subrouttines to generate graphics images on one or more graphics dipslay devices.

Although you can compile your DI-3000 programs when working on any terminal, you must be on an X terminal or working in an xterm window to run the programs.  

DI-3000 is licensed for all of the University's Solaris systems. 


Where to Find DI-3000

DI-3000 is available on Strauss. This document requires that you are working on an X terminal or an xterm window.


DI-3000: Instructions

Setting the DI-3000 Working Environment

To use DI-3000, you must first set several UNIX environment variables.  These settings may adversely interact with settings needed for other UNIX applications.  The instructions below provide a strategy for avoiding these interactions. 

You start a new shell before you use DI-3000, modify the environment, run DI-3000, and exit the shell before working with other software. You can start a new shell either by opening a new window on an X terminal or by issuing the UNIX csh command. These instructions assume that you are using the C shell (csh), which is the default for University of Delaware users. 

Compiling and Executing DI-3000

DI-3000 Example Programs

Several example programs are stored in the directory /opt/lib/pvi/test. The procedures above are illustrated next using the example DI-3000 program named polar.f.  You can test whether you have set up your DI-3000 working environment properly by following the instructions below.
