Description: Yet another plotter in 3-D.
     Yaplot is an easy 3D modeller and animator
     for visualizing the results from computer
     simulation easily.
     You can browse the motion of the 3 dimentional wire frame model
     with text labels and
     some marks on the cheap PC based X terminals.
     Data format is simple and intuitive.
     It is the least beautiful and not durable for presentation, but
     quick and smooth enough for daily use.
