    Don't know, but it can handle .csv files just fine and both excel and OOo can save in that format. Otherwise, text files are well supported generally. You can write custom files and tell R how to read them in fact. See the "read" function in the R documentation.

    R will basically take the columns of your file as variables and go from there treating each variable as a vector and forming a data frame by associating a set of variables to a common object and index. It works out nicely because it also establishes a standard order to the variables as well, so you can still treat the data frame as a matrix.

    My favourite right now is pylab (matplotlib). More matlab-like, easier to get to know that R I think, and great quality graphics.

    Ages ago I tried grace and really liked it at first. But then I often have data with gaps, and grace won't plot gaps (e.g. NaN), so gave up on it.

    QTIPLOT works well. Also Origin-7.5 works perfectly in wine...
