Not Xfce

I have general question for everybody.
I am linked to MS because I am using VisualBasic for MS Excel to draw graphs.
Is there any programming language with support for linux to draw charts, using with LibreOffice or without it. For example, I could have data file like csv or simple txt format and then I need something to bild a chart

Re: Not Xfce

most languages on Linux have some tools, somewhere, to draw charts.  it may require a contributed package in some cases.  reading a text file is generally easy and reading a csv is supported in most.  python is the language i suggest.  just 2 or 3 lines of code is all that is needed to read a csv and there is support for reading excel spread sheets.  there are many graphical drawing modules and packages to use.  python is also usable on Linux, Windows, Unix, BSD, and Mac OSX, so you can write code to run anywhere.  i have heard of a VisualBasic package for Linux but i have no idea what is supported in it.

PyChart:

Also, you can embed LibreOffice Basic, Javascript, Beanshell, or Python into Libreoffice:

One more vote for Python. Take a look at the following article:

I would like to say that I come back to this topic from time to time and carefully read what you wrote to me.
