	I ran into the same problem a couple of months ago for
a simulated annealing.  I wrote a quick perl script to do a very
simple minded data extraction from the Xplor log file and have
gnuplot generate nicely formatted graphs.  I'll put it on the

I havent used it for a while, but it was working last time I checked,
and I dont think i've modified it since then.  It should run with perl4
