Eukleides is a Euclidean geometry drawing language.
Version: 1.0.3Eukleides is a Euclidean geometry drawing language. Two softwares are related to it. First, eukleides, a compiler which allows to typeset geometric figures within a (La)TeX document.
Operating System: Linux
This program is also useful to convert such figures in EPS format or in various other vector graphic formats.
Second, xeukleides, a GUI front-end which makes possible to create interactive geometric figures. This program is also useful to edit and tune some Eukleides code.
Eukleides has been designed in order to be close to the traditional language of elementary Euclidean geometry. In many cases, it makes possible to completely avoid the use of Cartesian coordinates. You may want to have a look at some samples to see part of the language's features.
· The softwares eukleides and xeukleides have been developed on a GNU/Linux system. They should build on any system where flex, bison and GTK+ 1.2 (for xeukleides) have been ported. Furthermore, you'll need makeinfo to format the documentation file, and/or Texinfo to get a hardcopy. To obtain printable files after running eukleides, the PSTricks package is mandatory. Last, to run the shell script euk2edit you'll also need to have pstoedit.
