Welcome to the Scientific Endeavors Home Page where you will learn how easy it is to present your scientific and technical data using the GraphiC Library.


This plot shows the number of landings per hour at Chicago's O'Hare Airport.

This plot is a combination of several standard plot types and custom features

What is GraphiC ?

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 But it is also important that these plots be flexible enough to include all the features required to convey information precisely 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 (16 and 32 bit), and OS/2, although you need a different version of GraphiC for each operating system.

Just a few simple calls to GraphiC produce a plotting window with all the necessary menus. The complete interaction with the operating system's graphical user interface (GUI) is handled for you, leaving you free to concentrate on the best way to display your data. Advanced programmers can change this interface or even replace it.

We provide you with numerous examples to use as "boilerplate" for your new programs.
