Subject: using java applets: histogram, forms, etc.

This morning we discussed using the Math Forum's form processing capability
to enable the collection of various kinds of information from users over
the web.

http://forum.swarthmore.edu/tools/forms/docs/form.explain.html

One of the potential uses is to connect forms to java applets that process
the data. For instance, here's an applet for making a histogram that you
can use with your own data.

It's only a small step, hopefully, to make a form on the Math Forum which
automatically uses the data collected by the form with this or other
applets.
