Yes, there were programs for the FP-215 in one or another of the early CoCo
I have more than one of the CGP-115 plotters. The big weak point was a
little plastic gear that would split and then spin on its shaft stopping all
horizontal pen movement. I refilled the pens many times with a syringe and
inkpad ink. Black of course was the easiest color to find.
