Thanks to all the people who responded to my request. For all the people
who also expressed interest in the subject, here is the first article
summarizing the results of the enquiry:

Kevin Thompson from NASA said the CLIM grapher is becoming semi-standard
and that he believes almost all the semi-standard graphics toolkits (CLUE,
CommonWindows, GARNET <<more on this in next article>>) have some sort of
grapher, but few ones work across platforms. The ISI-grapher used to work
with several platforms, but he doesn't know if it's still active. The
closest thing he knows about is:

>Thank you for sending more than 20 requests ! Now ready for anonymous
>FTP at, cd to graphers
>There is graphers.tar.Z.uu file.

>It contains clim, ew, winterp, clue7.2, lispview, clx, ncw, and yy versions.
>There is no README like file, sorry.
>All the sources are not copyrighted.
>All the sources are not to show the best functionality of the tool used.
>All the sources are written as experimentations.
>I will appreciate if someone send me a refined version of them or
>versions for other window toolkits. I will add to the directory.

Philip Mc Bride from Stanford U. noted that there is a general purpose
CLOS-based 2-d grapher library as part of the lispview release (in the
MIT X distribution).
