General-purpose commandline graphing frontend
Submitted by Luke Hutchison
I do a lot of processing in commandline-only programs. Most of my output is in CSV format. Given that Gnumeric can import formatted text files, and that it sounds like Jody will soon be adding support to be able to work in commandline-only mode (e.g. batch-convert to .xls?), and to plot with the new graphing framework that he's been working so hard on, it would be nice if there were an option to take data from a file or from stdin, produce a sheet from it, and create a graph (perhaps in another sheet), all from the commandline. This would allow gnumeric to act as a visualization tool for many commandline-only analysis tools.
Thanks for all the great work you do, Jody.
