Objet: Link Gnumeric with another application
?: gnumeric-list gnome org

for educational reasons, i want to link gnumeric in asynchronous
mode, with a small program which can send to him small messages
(for example a value to display in a cell. this cell will be
refreshed with the new value anytime gnumeric receive a new value
to print). Is that possible and why? Thank you very much

Yes. You'll want to use the 1.1.x series. There is a sample of a
real time data feed in
Its a very simple example that monitors a named pipe for updates.
You can easily adjust it to suite your needs.

I have the binaries and the sources of Gnumeric. How can i do to
plug the sample_datasource plugin? Should i recompile all the
sources or only the sample_datasource ones. Where can i find a
manual that explains how to configure a plugin.

No need to make any changes in the core of gnumeric.  The plugins
are completely distinct.  You'll want to enable the plugin using the
    Tools -> Plugins
menu.  Then have a look at the source in plugins/sample_datasource
to see how to feed it data
