    I opened the 'fibonacci' examples and selected two adjacent columns.

    Playing with it after I sent the original letter, I realized what was
going awry.   The link you sent to
http://ftp.edu.stockholm.se/siag/archive/msg00103.html confirms it.
Somehow, instead of giving me an X by W plot of the two n-length vectors, it
was giving me n plots of 2-point vectors.

    I'm guessing that the reason I didn't have the benefit of the fix posted
to the follow-up messages is I downloaded siag3.16.tar.gz off the FTP
archive and not the CVS site.  I'm going to try the fixes and those should
set me straight.

    Many thanks and apologies for any misuse of the list.  PW and Egon are
nifty, and if I can get the same use out of Siag I may go months without
touching Windows.
