Awesome work

I have been thinking of doing this for a long time since I get tired of formatting every comment I make on a tex file. Thanks for your effort and this is going to be a permanent member of my preamble.

Great package and \RetArg command

Hello. Thank you for the great pack�age for Bode and Nyquist plots in Tikz. I am us�ing it ex�ten�sively for my slides.

Wanted to let you know that the out�put of \RetArg is in ra�di�ans and not in de�grees where as other com�mands such as \POArg is in de�grees. This is easy to cor�rect by us�ing 57.29*\RetArg. I have found out be�cause I have found dsi�crep�an�cies with mat�lab when us�ing pure de�lays. You will find that the Bode plot in the doc�u�men�ta�tion for the first or�der with de�lay is wrong.

There seems to be a new ruby version around which produces the error: csv2latex:52:in `gsub': invalid byte sequence in US-ASCII (ArgumentError) Any idea how to fix that?
