@Marco, that's what you are supposed to add, but you are now at the point where you need to ask a new question or continue in chat rather than here.

comment How to control where curves are in tikz
@Marco, but putting help lines inside the axis environment is probably not the best way to get a useful grid for the plot. Better to comment out the xtick=\empty, ytick=\empty line, and add grid=both, to the axis options.

comment How to control where curves are in tikz
@Marco - it depends on exactly where you put the \draw [help lines] statement. If you add it inside the axis environment it should use the same coordinates as the plot. But if you add it outside the environment - that is after the \end{axis} then it will revert to drawing coordinates, where (0,0) is the LL corner of the axes. I freely admit that I find this sort of thing quite baffling; that's why I prefer the simplicity of Metapost.

comment How to control where curves are in tikz
So try adding \addplot[color=red,smooth,thick,-] {(x)^2}; for the curve and \addplot[mark=none, blue] coordinates {(-6,20) (0,-4)}; for the tangent. Does that get what you want?

Did you mean (0.3,2.7) (1.3,2) (2.5,1) (4,0.65) (6,0.8)}; ?

Using longer paragraphs may also help - it gives the line breaking algorithm more chances to find a good set of breaks.

comment On flexibility/power of metapost to create graphs
Yes, but perhaps in a slightly different way. Given enough time and patience and skill you can program anything in MP, but its strengths are in drawing mathematical pictures rather than reading and processing text files. Having said that you can do quite a lot with the MPGraph package. Personally I prefer to take a two-language approach: I use python (or perl, or awk, or even rexx) to process the data and write the metapost input to draw the pictures.
