    Mouse input

    Don't ask me why but i want to take input from my usb mouse then record the position of the mouse on the y axis(vertical) then plot it on a line graph. How would i get input from a mouse, record the data per increment in time, then plot it on a graph something resembling sound waves on audacity?

    Code so Far I literally made this 5 minutes ago and I still need to work out the flow. (warning i'm a n00b):

    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    
    
    using namespace std;
    
    
    void main(){
        cout << "press enter to start";
    
    
        cin.get();
    
    
        mouse_in (void);
    }
    
    
    int mouse_in [1024](){
        
    
    
        char 'end';
        int graph = 0;
        for (int range;cin >> 'end';graph++)
            range = usb_in.yaxis
    
    
    return mouse
    }
    
    
    int usb_in(){
        
        return yaxis
    }

    Tons of syntax errors, and main returns void instead of int.
    Get yourself a basic grasp of C++ first, then choose an operating system to develop for. You are going to need platform-dependent API.

    Ok whatever. Forums obviously isn't good for help on a project just answer questions and leave.

    You haven't given enough information. We don't even know what OS you're using.

    Do not be an idiot. You must learn how to use a chainsaw before cutting down a tree with it. A child must learn to walk before learning how to run. Otherwise there will only be grief and danger. I am telling you this for a reason.

    Here's a better question. Is there a good flexible library that can make a graph in c++?

    And my OS is windows 7 64 bit on an ASUS G73jh with core i7 1.6ghz.
    If I was an expert already do you think I'd be on the forums asking for help?
    I never said I took the time to write good code I just wrote a scribble to start off with.
    When I know how to plot data on a graph then I have to figure out how to get time and mouse input.

    Here is a better question. Have you learned the language yet?
