I have recently discovered the TikZ packages for LaTeX: http://altermundus.com/pages/tkz/index.html
I have run the examples for
tkz-euclide with success.
I would also like to use the
tkz-fct package for plotting curves.
Since I have not previously installed Gnuplot, when I compile examples using the
tkz-fct package I get the error message: Plot data file `filename.tkzfct.table' not found.
I have read several web pages that describe how to compile the source for Gnuplot for Mac OSX and also some explanations on how to obtain binaries as part of other packages such as Octave and others. I have not tried these procedures yet, as they seam complicated and I am a novice at Mac OSX details.
What is the best practice for how to install Gnuplot for use with TexShop with MacTex 2012 distribution, on Mac OS-X 10.8.2 Mountain Lion for use with 'tkz-fct' package.
I apologize if a similar question was answered already, but there are so many different answers and many are a few years old.
