I have just started designing a program that has some very extensive graphics requirements. The program is being written in C/C++. (Actually it is quite far into development.)
My question is what is the easiest path to building a functional graphics gui. These are financial charts and graphs.
From what I have seen I can use x, xlib, xt, or motif to handle the graphics, but each seems to have a slightly different level of abstraction and functionality. Having never before written this level of functionality on a unix/linux system, I am somewhat unsure of what is the best path to take.
I have no problem with the rest of the app, things such as dialogs, menus, db access, etc, etc only with the the graphics portion.
Any suggestions or insights would be greatly appreciated.
