in thread [Win32] IO::Select's can_read method

There is a MinGW compiled binary of gnuplot here that seems to work after a fashion. I'm actually getting rotating 3D plots displayed now, though they're rather jerky and require the task manager to terminate.

There are several additional executables delivered -- wgnuplot.exe, pgnuplot.exe, and intriguingly, but unexplained as far as I can see, wgnuplot_pipes.exe -- one or more of which might work better than base gnuplot.exe when piping stuff from perl to plot?

If only OSS came with better documentation :(

    Yes, that's the one I'm already using. PDL-Graphics-Gnuplot actually works with this version of gnuplot to a promising extent - given that the module is pure perl and makes use of IO::Select and IPC::Run. (I've also been finding that Task Manager often needs to be used to clean up gnuplot.exe ... I'm hoping that's fixable.)
