This isn't exactly on topic, but if you do use GCG/EGCG, and if you have
obtained (it's free) and installed my CGM driver for GCG graphics, then
when you send do a PRETTYPLOT to produce a graphic you end up with a CGM
file, which you can import into many Mac and PC programs and it will be
made up of OBJECTS (text, lines) rather than a zillion tiny line segments. 

The driver is at:

I bring this up again, because one reason people keep asking for PC/Mac 
software is so that they can modify the resulting plots easily - a problem
that the CGM driver addresses.  (Of course, the program must use GCG
graphics - prettybox, for instance, goes straight to postscript.)
