DESCRIPTION
       The IBM Personal Computer Professional Graphics Display and
Professional Graphics Controller enable engineers, scientists,
technicians and designers to use IBM Personal Computers as integrated
workstations which offer high-quality color graphics capabilities for
a wide range of specialized applications.  The display and controller
offer a variety of graphic functions and many ease-of-use and
customizing features to help create advanced graphics.  These
facilities can also help with computer-aided design (CAD),
computer-aided manufacturing (CAM), computer-aided engineering (CAE),
image processing, and business presentation graphics.
       The IBM Personal Computer Professional Graphics Controller
requires two adjacent slots in an IBM Personal Computer AT, IBM
Personal Computer XT, or IBM Personal Computer Expansion Unit.  The
controller can emulate the current IBM Personal Computer
Color/Graphics Monitor Adapter.
       Many graphics functions are provided on the controller cards,
reducing the need to load software subroutines for key graphic
activities. The following functions and commands are supported on the
Professional Graphics Controller:
    Two-dimensional and Three-dimensional Graphics Primitives
        Absolute and Relative Move
        Absolute and Relative Line
        Absolute and Relative Polygon
        Absolute and Relative Point
