No , I didn't know that page, so thanks
for the pointer!

That's very similar to what I can do
now using opendx.
My problem is getting some sort of efficient
communictation between octave and the visualization
tool, because now I only get to plot by saving
data into a text file and calling dx through a "system"
command. I think that's the same I would have to do
in vtk unless I get the octaviz wrappers in place,
isn't it?
