    I have used and registered Digitize, shareware (US$50) which uses a scanned
    image of the hard copy, from

    Dr. Y. Danon
    50 Hagilad St.
    Arad 89034

    and find it does as good a job as you could reasonably expect. It has a
    feature that automatically digitises a line - really efficient. The quality
    of the final data will depend on the quality of the original paper data,
    the quality of the scanned image, and the signal to noise ratio in the
    original analogue signal. Once digitised, I have still needed to manipulate
    the data in a spreadsheet.

    You would find Digitize, and probably the freeware equivelant, Windig, on
    most big shareware Web sites.

    Depending on the above criteria, and what resolution you're expecting in
    the FFT, yes.
