The primary purpose of XLPlot is to create a figure rapidly. It is ideal for for use at high school, as the path from data in one or more spreadsheet columns to the final figure is short (just a few mouse clicks) and easy to grasp.
It contains basic statistical functions, such as Student's t-test and linear correlation of two sets of data (two columns in a spreadsheet). XLPlot has a number of build-in functions that can be fitted to the data in columns on a spreadsheet or to a curve in a graph. The user can easily add fitting functions of his own design.
XLPlot is the eXtra-Light version of programs in the Serf Software Suite, a set of programs more specifically meant for biologists. Items in the drawing sheet and the spreadsheet may communicate such that a modification in a column in a spreadsheet results in a change in the associated vector graph, allowing easy editing.
Bitmaps may be imported and manipulated on the drawing sheet.
With the JRTalk extension XLPlot may be controlled by a program you have written in Visual Basic , Mediacy's IP+ script or C. A C++ example showing communication between Mandel.exe and a Serf Software program is given on this page.
XLPlot is amply documented and help is provided in several ways: by key word search, by context and by menu item. The doc file includes a comprehensive step by step tutorial. Under Windows 10, the tutorial can be found by clicking "All applications" in the start menu. Then look for the XLPlot folder, which contains XLHelp.doc.
