We have written an HPVEE program with lots of technical presentations in
tabular form. When using the LOGALPHA object, the problem is that there
are no fixed column widths unless you have used an "equally spaced" font
(e.g., courier). You can write the character " " but it will be ignored
by the LOGALPHA object. Another way is to use the TO STRING object and
format fixed column widths. Here the problem is that the column width is
measured as a number of characters and the width will therefore depend on
the selected font. A proportional font will also be dependant of the
contents of the string (e.g., the character "W" uses more space than
Are there other ways of displaying data in tables?
If you have any suggestions or solutions, pleas let us know.
Thank you in advance.
