NORTHAMPTON, MA, July 8, 2003 - OriginLab Corporation announces
the release of Origin version 7.5, a leading Windows®-based
scientific graphing and analysis software. A host of new features
will allow users to more efficiently access data, create graphs,
and apply final touches. An import wizard visually assists in importing
custom ASCII and binary files; afterward the user can simply drag
and drop data files into Origin. Built-in utilities allow easy data
transfer with MathWorks® MATLAB. Worksheet calculations can
be automatically updated whenever the source data is modified. Over
60 basic plot types allow you to quickly create 2D, 3D, contour,
and image graphs. Users can instantly change the look of any graph
by applying a built-in or user-defined theme. Intuitive analysis
tools offer statistics, curve fitting, signal processing, and peak
analysis. For ultimate power and flexibility, a completely integrated
C compiler and over 300 NAG® functions are provided.
"Origin has become known in the research community as a
very powerful graphing and analysis software that is relatively
easy to use," says OriginLab's founder and President, Dr.
C.P. Yang. "For Origin 7.5 we provide timesaving tools to
simplify routine tasks, so that Origin will be even easier to
use for common operations, from importing data to constructing
and fine-tuning graphs."
For over 10 years OriginLab has provided a comprehensive solution
for scientists and engineers who need to graph, analyze, and make
professional presentations of their data. Origin 7.5 significantly
builds upon OriginLab's tradition of providing the required blend
of tools to accommodate both the novice and advanced users.
A wizard visually provides step-by-step assistance to import
ASCII and binary data. Once the user has imported a file, an import
filter can be created to allow these files to be easily dragged
and dropped into Origin in the future.
Automatic Update of Worksheet Calculations
Origin's Set Column Values dialog box now has a option to automatically
update results whenever source data is changed. User can import
or paste new data over existing data, or simply type in new values.
New "Select Columns for Plotting" Dialog Box
This new dialog allows efficient plotting of data from multiple
worksheets and modification of exiting plots. The list of worksheets
can be sorted by name, label, and imported data file information.
Users can instantly change the look of any graph by applying a built-in
or user-defined collection of formatting details called a Theme.
A theme can be constructed from any existing graph and it can be
applied to another graph, or to all graphs in an Origin project
file. Additionally, the user can copy the format of any graph element,
such as an axis, and paste it onto any other element of the same
Origin C Programmable Dialog Box
A dialog box can be constructed purely from Origin C code, without
any additional resource DLL. This dialog box supports the typical
controls like edit, check box, and combo boxes. Alternatively, the
dialog box can also be constructed to be shown in a tree for user
input of structured data.
User files such as PDFs, images, and programs, can be attached to
the Origin project (OPJ) file.
Origin C functions attached to a project will automatically compile
Exchange data with MATLAB, including workspace files (.MAT).
Origin C User-Defined Classes
Origin C now provides additional C++ features like user-defined
