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)


*  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 appreciated.
