What's new in this version

To use: 1) Start a debugging session 2) Select the menu option Window/Debugging/Plot 3) Paste and enter the name of a variable into the textfield at the bottom. The variable must be in scope and be an array or List. The elements in the array need to either be convertible to double or have a field that is convertible to double. One can zoom in by dragging a selection rectangle in the plot panel. After zooming use the fit plot to see the full plot again. If multiple variables are plotted the split button toggles between having the plots overlaid on each other or split into vertically stacked panels. It has only been tested when debugging Java. It might work when debugging other languages but only if that debugger was implemented via JDPA Debugger. http://youtu.be/ya-nFuh8yDY

What's new in this version

Adds a menu item to the Debug menu that plots the selected variable in the text editor, and also creates a new window. Fixes some resizing problems. Previous Update: Adds a map string input so each element in the array /list can be modified. ie "Math.abs(_)" plots the absolute value of the original list. Fixes the popup menu in Windows.
