a. Installer packages for the GrWin graphics library

To download a package file click an item in the first column of the table of the installer packages for GrWin below corresponding to your using compiler system referring the last column of the same table. The supported compiler systems can be seen at the Platforms section, and see the installation details in Install.

b. GrWin toolkit ( for VF users and developpers )

GrWin toolkit is a set of source code fragments by which library files for the GrWin graphics library can be built under various compiler systems, and this includes also patches for PGPLOT and f2c as well as source code for PGPLOT Windows-drivers that enable you to use PGPLOT and f2c with GrWin.

As PGPLOT drivers for Compaq Visual Fortran Version 6 are not included in the GrWin distributions, you should make yourself if necessary those drivers and library files for PGPLOT using this toolkit. You can make GrWin library files even for systems that has not yet been supported. This toolkit would be useful if you want to add new features or to modify specifications of the GrWin library for your own purposes. If you succeeded in porting GrWin to a system not listed in the table of supported compiler systems or in adding a new feature that seems useful for many users of GrWin, please let me know. Any donation of source code would be very appreciated.

c. Other files

Other files available for downloade are shown in the next table. Except the executables for PGPLOT demos, the uncompressed files and the files obtained by expanding each of the compressed files in the following table are the same as those installed in suitable folders executing an installer package in the above list. So there is almost no need to download files in the following table unless you need individual files for some reasons.

All the files necessary to make PGPLOT applications under a supported compiler system are compressed by tar + gzip in pggw0999b-XXX.tgz with XXX the abbreviation for the system name. This includes also the executables, which are not installed by any installer, for the PGPLOT demos of the original distribution of PGPLOT, and with them you can estimate the ability of the PGPLOT drivers built with the GrWin library.
