Yet another plotting package for Octave.

I have been using Matlab's handle graphics subsystem for quite some
time to create scripts with interactive user interfaces. I believe
this system is much more powerful than using gnuplot to just draw

Recently I found out that much of the needed functionality has been
implemented in the gtk+extra widget set (designed, obviously for the
gtk+ x11 toolkit).

I have put together some C++ source code to interface Octave with
gtk+extra's plot widget. The code is organized as an octave .oct
module and is loaded dynamically.

This is just an initial preview release to get your opinion on the
design choices made and maybe get some other potential developers
interested in helping.

You may find the code (including the necessary gtk+extra widget) at

The code is totally useless (can do simple plots, print them to
postscript and that's about it) at this point so don't bother if
you can't help. Hopefully, in a few months we'll have something more
