good graphs suggestions? C#, Java, Python, Perl -for displaying data

Are there any opinions on which language has the best graphs? I want to make nice graphs (like smoothed curves, bar charts, radial graphs and other ways of displaying data) and I am wondering if there is a language that has the best libraries or packages for this?
Thanks.
P.S. If you know of somewhere where I can see samples of the kinds of results please let me know. Mostly the language choices I guess are C#, Java, Python, Perl

Go with ChartDirector ( http://www.advsofteng.com/gallery.html ) and you can use any of these languages:
.NET, Java, ASP, COM, VB, PHP, Perl, Python, Ruby, ColdFusion, C++.

Perl is my favorite but I'm biased :-)

Good luck!

Hi thanks. How do you think it compares to

And if I want to use it in commercial software would I have to pay them each time. They say something about royalty free. Do you know about this?

I use it internally for our intranet and therefore we didn't need a redistribute license, so I don't know for sure.
However their website seems to be clear that once you pay that one-time fee you can freely redistribute with no additional fees.

I've used ZedGraph, an open source .NET graphing package, available at http://zedgraph.org/wiki/index.php?title=Main_Page .  It's written in C#, which is the language I'm using, but it can be used with C++ and VB as well.  No fees or royalties involved with open source.
