41 Programs for 7470 Plotter - Why so few?
I may have missed them but it appears to be very few of these available in the user's contributed libraries. I can only trace down one in PPC V10N10P19 - quite a shortage in an otherwise rich contribution scene.

Probably the price of the device (plus PLOTTER Module) was an entry barrier for many, but even so you'd think other examples should be around.

As it happens I've just finished putting together a 16k module that has a collection from a book as interesting as little known: "Graphik mit dem hp-41" by Walter Prankel- ISBN: 978-3-528-04455-8 (Print) 978-3-663-06858-7 (Online)

The programs are very large and can be further optimized for a ROM format. I've taken a stab at it, separating some common sub-routines as auxiliary functions across several of them. I don't own a plotter so haven't been able to try the final result though...

There's still room left in the module for more programs - if anyone has a good example of the plotter capabilities I'll be glad to add it to the module. RAW files preferred!
