    Generate Graphs

    Hi...
    I'd like to ask...
    can pure C used to generate graphs from more than one files' data?
    if yes, then if we input the data from MS-DOS, which we use to generate and show the graphs?

    thanks

    Yes, if you don't mind using primitive character based graphs. Otherwise you'll need to use a third party graphics library or a language better suited to graphical programming.
    My best code is written with the delete key.

    ... unless you use a Borland or M$ compiler which already has a graphics library.

    You said you need to use pure C. Then why go for sql. You can do the same through C.

    None

    No, you are using fopen(), fgets(), fread(), routines to read data from a text file. SQL is used for database files, not text

    I haven't tried any others, but I have used the allegro library for a while and found it to work well after a little time to learn it. Here is one of several possible links for it.
