You could also try KaleidaGraph for the Macintosh.  (A PC version is also
available.)  I'm not sure exactly how KaleidaGraph and Grafit would
compare, but I have used KaleidaGraph for all sorts of data analysis,
including non-linear least-squares fits.  While KaleidaGraph has its
quirks, like any program, it is very powerful and fast. I believe that the
producers of KaleidaGraph, Synergy Software, has a Web site from which you
can download a demo.
