I have been trying to do the same thing with plotting in real time using
Gnuplot and was wondering if you have gotten anywhere with this? I have seen a
program that does it, kinda, but i have not been able to completely disect how
it does it as of yet. If you are still trying to figure it out as well, let me
know and if i get anywhere with this other program, ill let ya know
