By default, we're releasing it under GPL. I guess I should place a copy 
of the license somewhere in the tarball...

For the graphs it produces, it just emits a gnuplot source file 
(textfile, easy) and then automagically calls gnuplot to display that file.

It would probably work straight out of the box under cygwin (or similar) 
with an appropriate build of gnuplot in your current path.

Failing that, you (or I) could easilly comment out the "call gnuplot" 
stage and end up with a vanilla console-IO application.

If it gives you any trouble then send me a mail and i'll fix it.

... There's also a paper that goes with it, which used to be on Clem's 
page but I see that the link is broken now, i'll get fixed.
