Thanks very much John - I've since added an Excel export and put the
graph into a drawer rather than a separate window.
I hadn't been aware of "R" - it looks very powerful. Scripting from
it would certainly open up a lot of options, but I've been enjoying
the challenge of building graphs in RR. My partner has a student
version of "Maple" which is similarly powerful to R (and appears to
have a similarly steep learning curve).
My initial aim with my little program was to make something a bit
more straightforward and to use Revolution a bit. I'm thinking of
adding a top level menu and some other stats functionality - such as
two variable statistics with a scatter plot or bar graph. We'll see
how it goes!
