    Is it possible to plot curves for calculation in c/c++?

    Hi there,

    Can i do this task for simple equations (like y=f(x)) or more difficult ones using only the commands and fucntions of c/c++ without any extra tools or library? i am using code::block.

    Thanks in advance.

    neither c nor c++ are the languages you want for this if you don't want to use extra tools or libraries.

    I use Python for visualisation all the time.

    Python + the matplotlib library is a fairly standard approach that j use all the time.

    Matlab (Commercial and cost a lot) or the free software in the same area like SciLab or Octave.

    If you have a spreadsheet program, the C / C++ program can create a file of X,Y values, and then the spreadsheet can import and plot the values.
