    Software to draw scales
    From: Andrew Nikitin

    Once in a while question pops up "is there software to draw scales?".
    Usually, this happens in relation to  flat Bygrave or similar topic.
    
    Here is a link to a program written by ham radio enthusiast.
    http://tk5ep.free.fr/tech/abaqueROS/datas/Galva_185-3L.zip
    My understanding that originally it was designed to draw scales and faceplates 
    for various ham hardware, but eventually grew up into something that is 
    capable of handling, for example, circular slide rules.
    
    I did not run the program and most of the documentation seems to be in some 
    language I do not understand, but sample files included with it look 
    impressive.
    
    I myself use postscript when I need to draw almost anything consisting of 
    repetitive elements (including scales), but I can imagine how someone may 
    find learning postscript intimidating and this program may be helpful.
