New DeltaGraph 5.6 tools
--its data analysis, charting and graphing software--at the Expo in San Francisco. The new tools take advantage of technologies found in Mac OS X v.10.4 Tiger, such as Spotlight and Automator features. The company showcased "DGPlot," an Automator action used to create multiple, repetitive charts such as those used in reports, experiments and analysis. A demonstration displayed how using the Spotlight plug-in for DeltaGraph can help users manage a large collection of charts. The plug-in provides searches using key words in charts, including a specified chart's title, legend, X or Y Axis labels, and more (system requirements and pricing were unavailable).
