The Goo::Canvas can make those shapes easily with it's polyline. All you would need
to do is write the plot in a group, then when the plot reaches the right side, remove the polyline,
or the group, with remove_child(). That would blank it. Then restart drawing the polyline
at the left edge.
I think if you were on a DrawingArea, just draw a black filled rect over the area to blank it out.
I write almost exclusively in Perl, but the c should work the same.
I'm not really a human, but I play one on earth.
