Thank you for your comments and encouragement.
In the bar chart section the final example is intended to show using a
bar-width greater than the plot width divided by the number of bars. This
is in contrast to the second example which shows thin bars. The width of
the bars is completely controllable by use of the 'bar-width keyword
(defaults to each bar just touching its neighbor). The bars on either end
of the chart are displayed "falling off the edges" by design. However, now
that I think about it some more, it doesn't seem like an intuitive or useful
feature of a bar graph. I'll change it in the next version.
I do not have a web site of my own and was using the script library at
reboltech to hold the files. I will check to see if there is a problem
downloading them. Also, I have attached copies of the files to this note.
The %q-plot.r and %get-stock.r files consist only of function definitions,
they do not generate any output on their own. Using Rebol/View/Desktop to
get the files simply places them in the
%public/www.reboltech.com/library/scripts subdirectory off of your main
Rebol/view directory. The file %q-plot.r contains the actual quick-plot
dialect and %get-stock.r contains a function to download stock market quotes
from <http://www.yahoo.com> www.yahoo.com. The two scripts are intended to
be used a part of a library for building useful applications. I believe
this might be the reason you not seeing any output when using desktop to get
the two files.
