FILE NAME is where X and Y data are
located. FORMAT [CHARACTER]
SKIP is number of lines to be skipped
before data starts. FORMAT [INTEGER]
# OF POINTS is the number of data
points. FORMAT [INTEGER]
COLUMN is the column in the file that
contains the applicable data.
FORMAT [INTEGER]
SCALE-LOG is a scaling number that
each data point is multipied by.
1.0 means no change.
0 means LOG10 scale.

Notes for setup file:
1. This file is read by NTRACE.EXE to control graph
plotting.
2. Certain special characters trigger NTRACE. Avoid using
these symbols in any other context.
% separates the no-scroll heading from the start of the
parameter records.
* start of new parameter, columns 42:56 contain value.
: when in same line as *, new values are to be found
in columns 42:56 of current line and any following
lines where first 6 characters are blank.
< when in same line as *, new value is to be found in
3rd line down, columns 11:60.
** end of usable (to NTRACE) part of file.
3. In each parameter description, the type of value required
and format used is indicated as follows:
[INTEGER] INTEGER *4 (I4)
[REAL] REAL *4 (E14.4)
[CHARACTER] CHARACTER *20 (A20),or if < ,CHARACTER *50 (A50)
4. X AND Y Data files are read using an unformatted read into
a REAL *4 array.
5. Any number of extra lines of text may be added as to this file
as long as the usable (by NTRACE) portion is less than 200 lines.
The order of parameters is not constrained since a character string
search is used to find the parameter name.
