Graph Paper

Post by qwertyface »

Inspired by the back of the BBC Micro User Guide, I've written a PostScript program to generate Gigatron Graph Paper. Basically it's a 160x120 grid, but it's annotated with the default memory addresses of the pixels. It needs to be printed on A4 paper (sorry to anyone in the USA).

I've attached a PDF conversion, but I don't think Ghostscript has placed the border quite right. I went to some lengths to make the grid look perfect when printed on my printer, which involves doing a lot of the positioning in device units, so it's understandable that Ghostscript might not do the right thing.

There are multiple things that could be improved (and may be in future), for one thing, the typeface on the labels should really be tinyfont.py.
