 The CVSversions of gnuplot (when compiled with the mouse option) support
 zooming with a mouse and show the coordinates of the mouse on the
 gnuplot window.

 One alternative plotting program I know of is grace and the Octave
 bindings by JeanMarc Valin, which were posted to Octave sources in about
 1999. The postscript output quality of grace is superior to gnuplot (IMHO)
 so it is worth checking out, though I remember having to tweak the Octave
 bindings a bit to get it working.

 And of course there's also pgplot.
And of course plplot_octave, http://merlin.inescn.pt/~qual/plplot_octave (or
http://www.fe.up.pt/~jcard/software/plplot_octave)
