Just for the record, gnuplot works very well on win32 (IMO, anyway).  In
fact, that's the only platform I've ever used it on, and I couldn't have
been happier with the experience.  It took a while to learn (a day or
so) but the end result was *exactly* what I wanted.

I don't know anything about how it works behind the scenes, so I have no
idea how hard it would be, but I would love to see a wrapper for it :o)

I have wrapped, or to be more accurate, created a pipe to, gnuplot in my applications -- in Linux. There is one also in in Gtk2::Ex:Geo

see "sub plot"

It does some guessing to figure out if the user wants to plot data from a hash or from an array or a Timeseries object (one of my in-house modules). It is handy and not much code, I know there is also Term::Gnuplot or something but this pipe approach has been good enough for me.
