    Assuming you are talking about XWindows and not console programs their are some XWindows graphics functions, but if you want portable code can use Mesa (OpenGL) which is an install option on redhat or you can download it. You will need to include <GL/glut.h> or some related files.

    Thanks for your reply....
    But how about if my program is console program?
    the problem is.., my program is a parallel program (using MPI and VPM)...and i want to visualize the result that i get with graphs....and i think i have to use console instead. Will the glut.h work?
    Thanks alot...

    Simple graphics - just horizontal and vertical lines, perhaps in colour

    More complex graphics

    no glut.h needs xwindows but if you are doing serious data visualization for a parrallel process application I would seriouslly consider writing a XWindows app with OpenGL if at all possible.
