Excel maybe would be an option (if you live in Microsoft world) or Calc. – 0xA3 Jun 30 '11 at 22:05

Google Charts, Google Spreadsheets, or Excel would work. Are you trying to do this programmatically?

You should use a Spreadsheet tool such as Microsoft Excel, Open Office Calc, Numbers, google docs Spreadsheet ... They are efficient for this task !

Use gnuplot. Without any extra settings, gnuplot makes some seriously ugly graphs, but learn just a little, and amazing power is yours. It handles all kinds of input data rather well, too. You have a nearly infinite variety of oputput formats as well.
