> I'm noty sure how this appies to ntpviz???

I was trying to describe what I'm doing currently and what I like and don't 
like about it.

The current ntpviz makes a bunch of graphs as files and puts a web page 
wrapper around it.  I'd like to avoid that and put the output of gnuplot 
directly on the screen.  Currently, I'm doing that with gnuplot's pause.  
That only goes forward.  I'd like to go backwards.  (That's what I meant by 
backup.  Maybe I should have said back up or go back a few graphs.)

I'd also like a bunch of knobs so I can tweak the graph I'm looking at.  Most 
likely zoom in or out.

I assume all that would be reasonably simple after I knew how to do it, but 
it hasn't gotten to the top of my list yet.

I'm not interested in automatically making graphs for somebody else to look 
at.  I'm only interested in "now", when I want to look at things.

A frequent thing that happens is that I see something interesting on a graph 
and then want to look more carefully at a graph I was looking at a few 
seconds ago.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
