HI
I'm not to sure where to place this post.
I'm looking for a computer application where I could plug values in to get charts , bar graphs pie charts etc. I do not have very much experience in this field , but I want to play around. If you guys know of any great programs that can produce this that would be great?

This all seems like something you could do with Excel. However, the stastical analysis program of choice is R. (just the letter).

MATLAB?

Actually, given your requirements, you should probably just use Excel (or the OpenOffice equivalent, Calc), or Numbers (if you have a Mac and don't have Excel or Calc), as maverick_starstrider suggests.

EDIT: And especially don't go around commissioning wheel-reinventing software as one of the above posters suggests.

EDIT2: If you don't have MS Office, here're links to the free and open-source OpenOffice, and a tutorial for CALC (I think 'Charting Data' is in the first tutorial):
