lapdf – PDF drawing directly in documents

The package provides the means to use PDF drawing primitives to produce high quality, colored graphics. It

  • uses B├ęzier curves (integral and rational) from degree one to seven,
  • allows 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 pdf but otherwise only depends on the calc package.
