GraphiC

 

Up

GraphiC is a library of routines that enable you to embed high quality graphics in your programs. All of the plotting capabilities needed by scientists and engineers are available for producing publication quality graphical output.

What distinguishes a scientific graphics package from a business graphics package?

It is obvious that scientists and engineers require many specialized types of graphs such as:

bulletLogarithmic and semi-logarithmic axes 
bulletError function plots
bulletSmith charts
bulletLinear polar, and 3-D contour plots
bullet3-D curves and surfaces.

But it is also important that these plots be flexible enough to include all the features required to convey information precisely:

bulletMath and Greek symbols
bulletAccented (European) characters
bulletError bars
bulletLegends
bulletProper axes labels
bulletNumerous fonts

We believe that often the best way to present your data is to use a plot that is not one of the "usual" plot types, or that is a combination of several of these. This flexibility is available only if you use a high-level library of routines such as GraphiC. GraphiC does the GUI for you. The C code you write using GraphiC is platform and device independent. The same GraphiC code will work in DOS, Windows, Windows 95, Windows NT, and OS/2, although you need a different version of GraphiC for each operating system.
