One of the downsides of plotting in Mathematica that I've found is that it is not interactive -- at least I've never found a way to do it. I always have to do the _whole_ calculation (creating a big list or whatever), then do the plotting in a "post calculation" fashion. I'd really love to plot as I calculate (e.g. solve an ODE and plot the solution as you generate a list of solution vectors). Even better would be to be able to interrupt the calculation/plot (cmd-period ?) if things look bad and be able to reset parameters to new values or plot settings, then start again. That type of approach to calculations and graphics is very useful and quite common in science. Can this be done in Mathematica?
