I have Gnuplot and Aquaterm installed, as an output method for  
Octave.  I've never tried raw Gnuplot, though I've heard that while  
it's very versatile, it's a pain to use.  I'll seriously give it a  
shot.  However, while this may sound childish to a TeX crowd, is  
there anything *like* Excel that has a GUI for manipulating graphs,  
and then exporting them to PDF?
