Visualizing magnetic fields


I'd like to visualize magnetic fields between magnets and charges. Fieldlines/streamlines would be ideal but e.g. vector arrows would do too.
Although a 3D model would be perfect, any advice regarding 2D approaches is appreciated as well.

Do you have any tipps on how to accomplish this? Which languages/programs should be used best? Do you know of any examples/tutorials out there?

I have basic experience in OpenGL.

Thanks a lot,

    I had a calculus professor in college do something similar in 3D with Mathmatica but that is a brutally complex program to use. At least it was 15 years ago when I was in college.
