  Description     : Light-weight GTK and curses based spreadsheet

(Include the long description here.)

See picture: http://www.gnu.org/software/oleo/oleo1.png

Oleo has for a long time been GNU's spreadsheet. Now there's not only
Oleo but also Gnumeric, the GNOME spreadsheet. Gnumeric is a full
featured spreadsheet, aiming to compete with commercial applications,
and well integrated with GNOME. Oleo is a light-weight spreadsheet
that'll work in almost any environment.

Oleo features a curses based interface (character mode), but also a
LessTif (Motif) based graphical user interface. A screenshot of the
Motif GUI is here (11K png file).

The current snapshots implements the following 2.0 features : 

- Motif/LessTif interface, based on the XbaeMatrix widget 
- Access to the statistics functions of the GSL (GNU Scientific Library). 

- Support for opening multiple spreadsheets, each in a Motif window,
  at the same time.

- device independent graphics through GNU plotutils, replacing the
  older gnuplot interface

- more portable build through autoconf and automake 
- internationalised (i18n) 
- updated documentation 
- ANSI C code (removed K&R stuff) 
- filter mode (read file from stdin, save to stdout) 
- better SYLK support 
- improved printing (PostScript and PCL) 
- database access (MySQL and DBF files) 
- SciPlot graphics (Motif/LessTif only) 
- cleaned up internals 
- runs in character mode as well as in a GUI 
- interface to CUPS to browse available printers
