How about a program that will graph simple trig functions... e.g. user enters "y=3sin2(x-30)" and the program will display the graph of it

i agree, it would be a good idea. it might be a bit difficult, though, to do the equation parsing.

you could almost have two contests connected... first an equation parser; Then an extension which uses the parser for this :)

That is why God invented bison:)

bison... i remember seeing that name in my quest (or at least as hard as a quest) to update my gcc version to 3.x

i'll look into it
