Graphing data

I get a lot of questions about how to draw graphs involving progressions of numbers, and comparisons of trends, etc.  Liberty BASIC doesn't have a built in graphing function, but it does support rich graphics drawing.

So if you're looking for a way to draw graphs of money, web traffic, rainfall, or whatever else stay tuned over the next couple of weeks.  We're going to blaze a trail!

There are at least a couple of options for solving this problem.

  • Export data out to a CSV file and use Excel to plot graphs
  • Use Liberty BASIC's graphics drawing features and draw the graphs ourselves
We are going to draw the graphs ourselves.

Impatient for the next post?  Check out this link!

Stay tuned!
