Hi,

I am a newbie with C++ but my main goal is to working with graphics. I want to draw circles and rectangle and lines and connecting lines with circles etc.

Please help me how can I start. Which compiler or library I should use so it can work with windows and Linux(prefer if it work with both Linux and Windows otherwise Windows is important). I am using Eclipse as IDE.

Please guide.

Thanks

I'd recommend 'CxImage' for that, it comes for buth Windows and Linux and is free, see http://www.xdp.it/cximage.htm and the introductory article at http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/1300/CxImage

Note however that this is mainly an image manipulation library, yet you can draw as well.

For any platform-linux,windows,mac ,OpenGL is the best library.It will work with almost all compilers.Be cautious that there are various versions of OpenGL.The first link below starts with earlier version of OpenGL which are really easy to get started quickly.However,OpenGL current version in 4 and has very big learning curve.Go through each link below in the given order,your transition will be smooth from version to version.

For basics,try the below tutorials
