  plotter - a definition from Whatis.com
A plotter is a printer that interprets commands from a computer to make line drawings on paper with one or more automated pens.
Unlike a regular printer, the plotter can draw continuous point-to-point lines directly from vector graphics files or commands.
Plotters were the first type of printer that could print with color and render graphics and full-size engineering drawings.

Plotter is capable of displaying any plot whose data set (points) are encoded as CLOS instances.
A plotter window can also serve as the destination for musical events that are generated from some external source, for example, from a group of musical processes running in the scheduler.
A plotter window can display more than one plot at a time but only the forward-most plot in the display is available for editing.

 DECS - Plotter
The queue name for the plotters from a DECS lab machine is eb1325-plotter.
As the plotter does take 150 pages of print quota, most users prefer to bring the file to the DECS office, eb1325, to have Support send the poster to the plotter.
Due to the amount of time required to setup and send a print job to the plotter, we are unable to process jobs that are sent within thirty minutes of the DECS Office closing.

Plotter: I don't think that being a Plotter necessarily means you're not open to new twists and turns in your writing.

Plotter: The important thing is being comfortable with how you set goals and make them work for you instead of against you.

 Bruning Zeta 924 C/D size 8 Pen Plotter
This plotter seems to be a pretty well engineered, high performance, servo motor driven unit, although the front panel user interface is convoluted and they should have made the pen holder bigger so you could use standard pens.
It should be a null modem cable (reverse TD/RD, etc.) and pin 20 on the plotter should be wired to CTS on the computer since the plotter apparently asserts handshaking on the wrong pin (which is also true for HP plotters).
For a cable, I think I used a Smartcable (which came with my plotter), with the "smart" end connected to the "modem" port on the plotter and the other end connected via a gender changer and, possibly, a 9 to 25 pin adapter to the PC serial port.

 Using Plotter
Plotter does its job by drawing a line segment from one point to the next.
If any of the point values passed to Plotter are very, very large, or infinity, you may get an exception error or a plot that doesn’t seem to contain anything.
The reason for this should be obvious – Plotter tries to work out a suitable Cartesian coordinate framework for your point set, and it can only do that if the maximum and minimum values of both the x and y points are different.

 Ping Plotter Server Side Validation information
Although we really didn't want to have to do this (it took a considerable amount of time to implement), it was a measure made necessary by some of the hacking community (a key generator was released).
Each time Ping Plotter is run, the machine specific hash from the validation key is compared with your machine.
The reason we use the machine information (MD5) is so that if Ping Plotter has already validated against the server, it doesn't have to go back up to the server again each time you run it.

The first step in the upgrade procedure is to simply replace your existing weather plotter files with the files the tar archive.
It is probably a very good idea to ensure the permissions on all files in your weather plotter directory can be read and executed by the web server (something like chown apache.daemon -R weather-plotter-2.1.2 and chmod -R a+rx weather-plotter-2.1.2/).
