What is the best way to create a graph?

I wish to create a graph of tan x vs x to give a nice display (avoiding tan 90, etc.}.
I have Excel, Adobe Illustrator and could get other software if it was good at this job.

Excel is designed to make business style charts. You're much better off going with something that targets math. MATLAB has great graphing capability, but I wouldn't shell out the cash for it unless you need to do a lot of complicated mathematical graphs. If you just need a few simple algebraic and trig graphs I'd say go with Erk333's second link.

Erk and Tommy
I have downloaded erk333's from second link and installed the basic program.
The graphics are gimmiky and you have to buy before you know the ultimate quality.
Tried technical support - no answer.
Is there something more like MATLAB that is simpler to use?
I think I would be hard-pressed to master MATLAB.

This program last updated 2003
Too basic - you're going to say I'm too fussy.

If you want something super fancy, you'll probably have to buy something. MATLAB can do a whole lot and I recommend it, but it does take a bit of learning. Tons of examples online though for almost anything you would want to do.

Still not too happy with the graphical outcome.
I'm writing a book, and it's more to do with matching the graph axes and number formats with the ones I'm used to when using Adobe Illustrator, which are just perfect.
Can't settle for less, so I'm looking at MATLAB.
