I'd like to have a program draw a plot; compute for a while; erase the old plot and draw a new one in the same screen space; and loop indefinitely in this fashion (kind of a slowed-down version of animating graphics) Can anyone give me a template for doing this? (especially the "erasing" part) Notes: * The plot can be a cell in the notebook doing the computing or (maybe better) be plotted in a separate window. * Obviously I may also save the plot to a file before erasing it. * I'd like to recover the memory from each plot, or at least not have the program memory fill up if I compute a large number of plots this way. Email cc of any replies to siegman at stanford.edu appreciated.
