    graphics stuff

    I want to do very simple graphs.
    Basically I want to be able to create dots where I need to. How do I go about graphics with c++?
    (do I have to use openGL?)

    Well you can start by saying which OS/Compiler you're using (today)
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.

    No you can use DirectX, GDI, etc...

    More info is required I'm afraid before we can help you.

    You should check out Allegro . It's cross-platform and very easy to use. It's intended as a game programming library, but of course you can use it for any type of application that requires graphics or sound or such.

    Are you talking windows or console programming?
    i don't think most standard compilers support programmers with more than 4 red boxes - Misplaced

    You may consider the SDL Libraries. Portable, simple, uses OpenGL.

    You cannot place pixels in a console application.
    A simple solution is using SDL or Allegro. Other solutions are GDI, DirectX or OpenGL (As stated above)
