    Is there a simple tool to add a graph to a web page? One which can "get" data from a server and plot itself?
    Thanks.

    Define `getting data from a server'. Google has the Google Charts API, which plots data based on values passed to it in the query string. See it at http://code.google.com/apis/chart/ . There are other similar solutions out there, I believe.

    The data is gathered by a compiled program which runs on the server and stored into a file which resides on the server. The graph would appear in the client browser when the html page descriptor is loaded or refreshed.
    Thanks for the info.... I'll check out Google on it.....

    Ok. Well, the deal with using it with the Google Charts API is that you'd have to read it in when the HTML page is loaded up, using PHP, for example, and then convert it into the kind of URI GET data that Google Charts expects. Otherwise, you'll want to look at a solution that works more like Gruff Graphs (although Gruff Graphs is in Ruby, and if you are not using Ruby for everything else, you may just want to stick to a solution in the language you *are* using).
