The programs rdp, intp, and bgp
plots the Radial Distribution (RD) curves, Intensity curves
and Background curves, respectively, on your Tektronix 4010 device.
The programs read the files written by the GED analysis programs
The original Tektronix monitor is probably all but extinct today, but other terminal programs can emulate Tek graphics, noteably Xterm. For printing, I suggest tek2ps (included below), which converts the Tek graphics codes to PostScript. rdp, intp, and bgp can run tek2ps (or other programs) automatically.
The programs are written in ANSI C, and uses no special drivers or libraries. They are written for Unix systems, but should be possible to use on other plattforms.
Tek2ps is written by Michael Fischbein. The prolog file says:

Note: It's a long time since I wrote this stuff. Had I written it today it would probably have been done differently. I am not likely to bother about changing much in these programs, as they work fine for me...
Here are some examples of the curves displayed on an Xterm.
Dotted line is experimental curve, solid line is calculated curve.
The molecule in question is Pentamethylarsenic(V), a trigonal

RD-curves. As can be seen, rdp can be made to draw "bars" on
the location of the interatomic distances, and mark them correctly
Intensity curves, for short and long camera distances.
