Some day I will make quality software. Programming FTW.
Writing a visualization library in C
I searched all over the net form visualization library in c.
But couldn't find one and c++ ones are hard to integrate.
So I thought of writing my own.
I am going to use d3js as basis.
Any helpful resources are appreciated.

I suggest simply generating text file in gnuplot or gpaphviz compatible format (depending on what kind of data you want to visualize) and then using command lone too to generate image, pdf file or whatever else you want. These two tools are really nice and easy to use.

Guess no need to write a library anyways.

But if I'm doing a commercial project then..... i got to write one.
