When discussing statistics in e-mail based discussion groups, or in
newsgroups, it is sometimes useful to include simple, text-based
statistical graphics. Here is an example, a histogram (only useful
with a fixed-width font, obviously).

Other useful plots would be boxplots, scatterplots (even Trellis-like,
with multiple panels), line plots, and perhaps even levelplots.
Does there exist a package containing such functions, or perhaps
a text-based output device?
I already know about the 'stem' function, which is very nicely
implemented, BTW. Here is some sample output (normal distribution,
with decimal point at '|').
