@clacke As a Biology undergrad in the early 1970's a lot of dendrograms (mainly Botanical) were being printed on the main university graph plotter (I think generated by FORTRAN programs). The world has changed a lot since then.
These are magnificent!
@clacke I wish they were still around, they were so cool. Not fun to maintain though, and hell to run in a multi-user environment. I wrote some interface stuff for a Calcomp plotter on the university VAXcluster where I worked in the 1980's. It had to take stuff off a print queue, print a user banner on the plotter before running the plot. So many times the plot went backwards over the paper and wrote all over the last user's stuff - until we mastered the management of it.
