PlotMorph is very useful (http://wiki.squeak.org/squeak/2626). In addition to
providing graphs in Squeak, I found out almost completely by accident that the
data points on a PlotMorph graph are "live". You can click on one, then explore
the objects that they refer to. This is quite useful if you have a large amount
of data with relationships that may not be obvious.
