AGL Library (version. 3.x)

The Astronet Graphic Library is a package of few megabytes, easy to install, that can manage graphic terminals and hard copy devices. DIRA2 use the version 3.x of AGL library.

The save set AGL3.BCK in the distribution kit contains the complete AGL library, already compiled for VAX/VMS. In the file AGLINSTA.DOC of the AGL save set you can find more instruction to install and configure the graphic library.

Moreover you can modify AGLDEVS.DAT to configure your installation. The file looks like:

# HEADER : agldevs.dat    - Vers 3.5.000  - Sep 1989 -  L. Fini, Oss. Arcetri

# AGL configuration file template

You have to describe your hardware configuration for the remote device. We suggest to define the keyword GRAPH of [DIRA2]SETUP.DAT to TT. The user can use the AGLDEVS.DAT file in the personal directory to configure his own graphic terminals. The DBA must configure the remote graphic terminals and the hard copy devices.
