    plotting/graphing

    I want to plot data points and graph functions. Nothing to advanced, just a basic 2D plot.

    What library can I use to do this?

    I am very new to C, any advice on how to plot/graph will be of great help!

    Thanks

    I'm not new to C, but I generally use Excel.
    7. It is easier to write an incorrect program than understand a correct one.
    40. There are two ways to write error-free programs; only the third one works.*

    gotoxy() will only take the cursor to the co-ordinates u specify.. To actually draw the lines , u need to use the line().. if u want to draw the lines for all the points that u have, its pretty tedious.. U can use pgplot as well, I think

    I like the excel idea.

    Can I auto output my data into an excel file that will bring up a graph?


    To answer previous question I am on OS X, havent been able to get pgplot of gnuplot to work properly.
    I can run excel through OpenOffice
