The book 'The Minicomputer in the Laboratory' by James W Cooper covers using an
X-Y plotter with an 11/05, and has assembly listings and a whole bunch of related
stuff about scientific plotting. Also a lot of info on using the LPS-11 too.
There are plenty of copies out there and quite cheap too. It's an excellent book
and could be of use to you.
