    Lightbulb Drawing graph in C??

    Ok first of all, this q is regarding on my college Data Structure subject. Recently my lecturer gave us an assignment to implement those Data Structure stff (Eg. struct, queue, stack, tree, etc).

    It is about doing a student accessment program where admin can key in student info (id, name, subject & marks etc) and save the info into file. The student can able to search using their ID and display their result. So I would like to ask if there is a way to draw out a graph of the subject marks? Like y-axis is marks and x-axis is subject name. Is there a way to do so? Thanks in advance

    There is no standard way to do graphics in C. You'd have to use a third-party library such as Allegro or SDL.

    There are no built in graphical elements that you can plug in your code. You can easily write on your own. Ensure that top left corner is 0,0.

    Look into the line-draw functions that come with the compiler. Also cursor-movement functions with really long names (I don't rememver thye actoual name but something like setxyposition(x,y); Borland's equivalent is goyoxy();

    Other than that, you probably won't get much more with such a vague request.
