Summary description: Drawing with PDF commands in pdfLaTeX documents
License type: gpl


The package provides the means to use PDF drawing primitives to produce high 
quality, colored graphics.  It
 - uses Bézier curves (integral and rational) from degree one to seven,
 - allows TeX typesetting in the graphic,
 - offers most of the standard math functions,
 - allows plotting normal, parametric and polar functions.

The package has linear, logx, logy, logxy and polar grids with many specs;
 - it can rotate, clip and do many nice things easily
 - it has two looping commands for programming and many instructive example files.

The package requires pdfTeX but otherwise only depends on the calc package.


This package is located at 
.  More information is at
(if the package is new it may take a day for that information to 
appear).  We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org .
