  1. How could I plot my xy data from C++? I have heard that one can use
    gnuPlot for instance, but has somebody actually experiences of that?
    Does it work?

    My aim is that of Matlab plot(x,y,'o'); which plots points (x,y) with

    gnuPlot is "stand alone" program which takes data in textual format and
    converts them into graphics. Your C++ program can create text file in
    format understandable for gnuPlot. Better might be to output the info
    to std:cout. Users can still redirect it to file, but can also direct it
    right into gnuPlot pipe.

  4. I send data to gnuplot through a pipe. It is fine as long as
    you are not concerned with speed. This is not specificaly C++.
    For example pipe this to gnuplot :
    plot "-" with lines

    2 4
