tkz-fct.sty  uses   tkz-base to draw   graph of functions with a Cartesian
 (rectangular) coordinate system.  


This program can be redistributed and/or modified under the terms
of the LaTeX Project Public License Distributed from CTAN
archives in directory macros/latex/base/lppl.txt. 

 -- needs etex, fp.sty, tkz-base and gnuplot;
 -- automatically loads the package TikZ; 
 -- compiles with utf8, pdflatex;
 -- compiles using the chain dvi->dvips->ps2pdf; 
 -- not yet ready for use with TeX and ConText (I need more time and ideas); 
 -- good news!  ready to lualatex but I still need to test.    


You can experiment with the tkz-fct package by placing all of the distribution
 files in the directory containing your current tex file.

You can also placing all of the distribution files in the directory : 

How to use it

To use the package tkz-fct, place the following line in the preamble of your
 LaTeX document.


If you use the xcolor package, load that package before tkz-euclide to avoid
 package conflicts.


 Documentation for tkz-fct and tkz-base is available on my sites:
 http://altermundus.fr (en fran├žais) or  http://altermundus.fr (in english) 
 All  examples given in documentation will be stored on my sites as standalone files, ready for compilation.  

The new package tkz-euclide is *not* compatible with older packages tkz-base, tkz-2d, and tkz-arith.   


-- 1.16 c correction of bugs 
          now default domain is xmin:xmax and not -5:5.  
-- 1.13 first version   

How to get all the  examples :

1) You need to modify the file TKZdoc-fct-main.tex . Replace
  \usepackage{tkzexample}  by

2) Compile the sources
  $ pdflatex TKZdoc-fct-main.tex 
   You get in your folder all the examples  with the prefix tkzFct.

3) Put all these files in a new folder with the ruby script "addcontent.rb"
  Run the script 
  $ ruby  addcontent.rb
  You get  a folder with all the complete examples. The files begin with

4) Now you can compile the files. A fine solution is to use a makefile. You 
 can put the two files  tkzfctpreamble.ltx and Makefile inside the last folder
  and now you run
