we still do not have dynamic graphics in R natively.

i just found out about a widget library called fltk
info is at

it has all the stuff r currently can do only through tcl/tk or
(as i do it) excel: sliders, knobs, spinners and so on.

it is multiplatform, there are production versions for
unixen and windows, and there is a beta for macs.

this could be a way of getting some of luke's dynamic graphics tools
into R more easily.
perhaps this looks interesting enough that some r-core member will have
a look at it.
