    Go to my website and download bmp.c from the BabyX resource compiler. This contains a function for saving an array as a .bmp
    file.

    Now your problem is to create the plot as a raster.

    In C, it's usually easier to treat 2D arrays as 1D arrays, and do the
    indexing manually. That's because C's 2D arrays aren't good if
    the dimensions need to be flexible, which is usually the case.

    So set the whole buffer to your background colour, probably white.

    Now iterate over the x range, of your array. Say the bitmap is
    256 x 256. iterate from xi = 0 to 255.
    Now convert xi (pixel x) to x (logical x). Say your plot goes from 0
    to 1. logical x equals x1 / 255.0.
    Now calculate logical y, based on your function. say you are plotting
    x squared, logical y - logical x * logical x.
    Now convert logical y to pixel y. This is a similar operation to
    calculating logical x from pixel x, but in reverse.

    Now set the pixel to red, using the formula

    Code:
    buffer[ iy * width +x] = RED;
