grapherAD is a graphing monitor for a custom spectroscopic ellipsometry and spectrophotometry data fitting software used at Plasma Technologies group of CEITEC, Masaryk University.
The data fitting runs on a heterogenous PVM-based computational cluster and the primary purpose of grapherAD is real-time graphical display of data obtained from PVM (fitting parameter control and evolution visualization is the task of in a separate program). However, it can also display local data files – although only in the format produced by the fitting software. A sample data file is included in the tarball, so you can try it if you wish.
As its name suggests, grapherAD uses mainly the graphing widgets of
Gwyddion plus a few other utility functions (for instance its view setup file
is a serialized
GwyContainer with the format identical to

README in the tarballs for some usage notes. The code
in the tarballs here has the PVM communication parts disabled by default.
Therefore the compilation requirements are only:
Note there is no
configure script in the tarball, just a
Makefile, because the program is used on a handful of computers
in a well-defined environment, therefore we do not need
configure and it seemed an overkill to create one just for this
publication. It should compile all right if you have the dependencies
