Graphics query

If I have a question, about how to implement a graphics algorithm in
C++, but not specifically related to getting the graphics on screen
(that I can work out for myself). Would asking for help in the
implemention ( asking things like whether I should use std::vector vs
std::list for example ) be off topic here?

No, it seems generic enough. If your question does not require some
pre-requisite knowledge of any special graphics algorithms, post away.
If you think to catch somebody who's specialising in graphics using
C++ here, and post a question about some special graphics programming
area none of others will have interest in, then you will be leaving
many readers outside your conversation. Such specialised postings
are strongly discouraged here. There is the 'comp.graphics. algorithms'
newsgroup for that.

So, post your question phrasing it so a knowledgeable C++ person with
no graphics experience should be able to answer, and reap the rewards!

At the moment I'm using Borland's C++ (http://www.borland.com/products/downloads/download_cbuilder.html#) I want to be able to take an array of points and plot them on the screen. Is there a way to do this? E.g. I want to be able to graph a function. At this point I'm not up to a level in C++ where I want to start learning Visual C++ so I don't want to go that route. Thanks

The method for printing documents in .Net can be confusing, especially for newer users. I would like to create a way to simplify this process. My idea would be implemented using a PrintDocument (much like the current model), but my PrintDocument would have a Pages collection such that each time you need to have an additional page, you would just add another page to the collection and then use the page object for the actual drawing etc. ...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
