Help! Need yesterday:

Can anyone recommend math sw for Sun UltraSPARC, Solaris 2.5.1,
running OpenWindows ?

Sort of a MathCAD for Unix. I know there's Wolfram sw but
that's probably overkill and too pricey.

Feature list needed immed:

1. plot tables of xy data; capable of doing multiple plots per xy
axis figure; linear or other defined interpolation of data points.

2. plot formulae data "on top" of existing curves of table data, using,
hopefully, symbolic input.

3. save plots as GIF preferably, but TIFF, EPS, HPGL, PICT will do.

4. coloration of different curves in plot or other method of

Other capabilities welcome, but cost and reliability are important.
