4 Point Graphics 1.0B
Released in 1984 by IMSI (International Microcomputer Software, Inc)
For DOS

First released in 1983, 4 Point Graphics was one of the earliest 
drawing and animation programs for the IBM PC. It competed against a 
drawing program called PC Crayon.

It is designed to run under PC-DOS 1.1 or later with 128K and
requires an IBM CGA card or compatible.

This program has no on-screen menus. To use it, you must refer to the
quick reference card.

The April 17, 1984 PC Magazine has a review of this product:

There is an account of the early days of IMSI here:

This disk image is formatted for DOS 1.x and may not open in tools
like WinImage.

Note: Do not use the Kryoflux tool to convert to a sector image. Use
the IMG or IMD images instead. The original disk had some damage that 
Kryoflux can not handle. Additionally the disk was mastered 
incorrectly using an 8-sector 320k format with 9 sectors present on 
each track, this also confuses it.
