...but lacks a simple spreadsheet for data editing/easy viewing of raw
figures. The same is probably true for R. The spreadsheet functionality
is the reason why I had a look at rlplot; but what I am looking for is a
replacement for proprietary software I currently use, and that only run
on Windows or Mac OS. Sometimes I also use Grace, but only if I know
that I don't need to work with the data I plot (like subtracting columns
from each other).
