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.
