EZ-PnF Version 2.31 Specifications/Features:

EZ-PnF Version 2.31 is a  Point and Figure stock charting program with an easy to use  interface having pull-down menus, info screens, context-sensitive help, mouse, and printer support. EZ-PnF is DOS-based, but does not require the user to have any DOS knowledge in order  to either install or run EZ-PnF on systems running Windows.

EZ-PnF generates point and figure charts that feature 'Traditional' box value scaling (as used by Chartcraft), User-specified fixed value per box scaling, or User specified logarithmic (fixed percentage change) box value scaling.

EZ-PnF can generate charts with 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 box reversals.
The EZ-PnF 1 box reversal algorithm is as described by Wheelan
and by Wyckoff.

EZ-PnF charts can be based on daily high/low, daily close or daily average stock price.

EZ-PnF displays the dates that chart columns start and end.

REGISTERED versions of EZ-PnF support the creation of Relative Strength
point and figure charts, based on indexes or issues of the user's choice.
The Relative Strength 'Scale Factor' can be AutoScaled or User Selected.

EZ-PnF charts can be displayed/printed with 'full grid' ie graph paper, or
with Tick Marks.

EZ-PnF charts may be printed on any DOS compatible printer that
supports either the IBM* PDDS*/ASCII, EPSON* ESC/P* or HP*PCL*
data streams and is attached to the LPT1 printer port. Most printers can
support one or more of the built-in printer data streams.

EZ-PnF also automatically creates a Windows BITMAP of each chart print image.  The Bitmap can be selected, using Windows Explorer, to view/edit/print/paste into any Windows program that supports Bitmaps. 
This allows ALL Windows users to view/edit/print the automatically created bitmaps using any Windows program that accepts Windows Bitmaps and prints on a printer supported by Windows.

EZ-PnF has a line drawing capability that allows the user to draw support and resistance lines and points.

EZ-PnF can directly read stock price information from many
popular stock analysis programs: MetaStock*, CompuTrac*,
ChartPro*, MegaTech*, Maximizer*, $tokTrax*, Telechart 2000*
(TC2K V4's Databank V3 data export feature required),
FastTrack*, QuotesPlus2 (ascii export data), and EZ-PnF V1.0. 

Registered versions of EZ-PnF can directly read the downloaded Free historic price data files available from MSN MoneyCentral, or Yahoo!Finance internet websites.

EZ-PnF can also read over 1580 forms of User-specified ASCII, 'plain-text', comma delimited data files. Most database, spreadsheet, or stock analysis program have comma separated variable (CSV) as a data export option. Another  feature of the EZ-PnF ASCII WIZARD allows EZ-PnF to 'skip over/ignore' a user-specified number of lines at the beginning of an ascii data file.

EZPNFUTL, the  'ASCII Data Utilities' package is included FREE with registered versions of EZ-PnF. Read EZPNFUTL.TXT for descriptions of the FREE ASCII data utilities included.
