Sorry this isn't clear.
I'd like (and I think many others would too)
To plot simple graphs of the style in
1 functions (over a specified range)
2 Ones own data - probably actual measurements of some sort.
Since it is fairly easy to fill a container of some sort with values from a function over a range, I suggest the project should
concentrate on plotting data that is already in a container (STL vector for example).
You could do 1, 2 and perhaps 3 dimensional data -
1 D would be repeat measurements distribution on a line.
2 D is traditional x - y plots
3d is x, y and z
Hope this is clearer - but you can chose what you submit too.
