Release 3.06c 2020/04/06

## Description

The package `tkz-base`

provides some tools like a Cartesian (rectangular) coordinate system to other packages like `tkz-euclide`

or `tkz-fct`

. With this package, you can draw coordinate axis, grids, draw points, the principle is to specify the position of any point in two-dimensional space by an unique couple of coordinates.

## Licence

The scontents package may be modified and distributed under the terms and conditions of the LaTeX Project Public License, version 1.3c or greater.

## Features

- needs xfp.sty, numprint;
- requires and automatically loads PGF/TikZ > 3.0;
- compiles with utf8, pdflatex, lualatex;

## Installation

The package `tkz-base`

is present in `TeXLive`

and `MiKTeX`

, use the package manager to install.

You can experiment with the `tkz-base`

package by placing all of the distribution files in the directory containing your current tex file.

For manual instalation all files must be moved into the different directories in your installation `TDS`

tree or in your `TEXMFHOME`

:

doc/TKZdoc-base.pdf -> TDS:doc/latex/tkz-doc/TKZdoc-base.pdf doc/examples/*.* -> TDS:doc/latex/tkz-doc/examples/*.* doc/sourcedoc/*.* -> TDS:doc/latex/tkz-doc/sourcedoc/*.* code/*.* -> TDS:tex/latex/tkz-doc/*.*

## How to use it

To use the package `tkz-base`

, place the following lines in the preamble of your LaTeX document.

\usepackage{tkz-base}

The line `\usepackage{tkz-base}`

loads TikZ. The line `\usetkzobj{all}`

loads all objects used by `tkz-euclide`

. With `\usepackage{tkz-euclide}`

you don't need to use `\usetkzobj`

To avoid package conflicts, you need to load `xcolor`

before `TikZ`

or `tkz-base`

or `tkz-euclide`

.
