Re: Ploting widget


You cut it right to the point.  gnumeric and GtkExtra are not comparable.
gnumeric is an eye candy, whereas GtkExtra is for efficiency zealots:  it's
very minimalistic (requires only GTK+ to be installed) and good for real-time
plotting (which is what I myself am using it for).  I would highly recommend
using the recent CVS version of it, as the official one has memory management

There is also the (seriously lacking last time I checked) gtkmm-based and
qwt-inspired plotmm -- authored by one
of qwt developers who got displeased by the direction qwt has taken and,
in particular, by all these dependencies around it.

Finally, there is the GTK+-based GtkDatabox -- .

Apologies for being a bit off topic.  Since the plotting issue was brought up, I just
wanted to share my findings.

Best regards,

It looks like the plotting is done with the goffice library.  However,
it looks like this library includes considerably more than just the
plotting / graphing functionality, so it may be a bit  more work than
just wrapping a graphing library.  This also makes it less attractive
for people who don't want to add all of the dependencies of
gnome-office to their app dependencies.  Of course, I haven't looked
at it extensively...
