Yep!  That's the stuff!  Sorry I wasn't more specific.  Just been a
while since I'd looked at it.

I'd love to know how well it works out for you.  Especially love to see
any pretty pictures you create with it.  ;)


Regards,

Greg

 Hi guys,
 
 Is there anyone here that's good with C++ and has a little bit of time
 to add PostgreSQL support to a project?
 
 There is a 4D visualisation program called Flounder:
 
 http://www.enel.ucalgary.ca/~vigmond/flounder/
 
 And it does some pretty nifty stuff.  It takes in data sets (x, y, z,
 time) and displays then graphically, saving them to image files if
 needed, and also creating the time sequences as animations if needed.
 
 Was looking at it from a performance tuning tool point of view.  i.e.
 Testing PostgreSQL performance with a bunch of settings, then stuffing
 the results into a database, and then using something like Flounder for
 visualising it.
 
 It seems pretty simple, and Flounder seems like it might be the right
 kind of tool for doing things like this.  Was emailing with Edward
 Vigmond, the author of it, and he seems to think it'd be pretty easy to
 implement too.
 
 Now, I'm not a C++ coder, and as short of time as anyone, so I was
 wondering if there is anyone here who'd be interested in helping out here.

Cool.

Going to check it out now.  The screenshot looks *very* nice.
