Now that my school term is over I can finally get some quality time in with my directed study, a.k.a. my Gnuplot frontend. The C++ wrappers for gnuplot are coming along. They may not be super efficient, but they are easy to automate which is what I need for the GUI. I started doing some real work on the GUI, and I'm finally getting up to speed with Gtkmm and Gnomemm. The folks on irc have been helpful with my Gtkmm problems. Unfortunately, work must quit until after I return back from visiting relatives for the Holidays.
