plotting bar charts

  i want to display a simple bar graph: in X, in ascii, whatever.

  info pointed me to the stat family of commands--is anyone familiar
  with them?  i found the commands "bar", "gutil", "ged", and so on
  but i was not able to figure out what the format of my input numbers
  should be and how to display the output.

  or shall i ask, how do *you* display a bar graph?

I believe your best bet is xgraph.  Part of the original README.ANNOUNCEMENT
is given below.
