What is the difference between the two packages ? Did they have a different use? I know they have been made from the same author.

The description of tkz-berge says that it pro­vides a col­lec­tion of use­ful macros for draw­ing clas­sic graphs and the description of tkz-graph that is de­signed to cre­ate graph di­a­grams.

I have seen a lot of examples from both packages. They seem to do the same thing.

The first line of tkz-berge is


so it starts off from where tkz-graph finishes, so obviously any document using tkz-graph could use tkz-berge and be using exactly the same package just indirectly loaded. then tkz-berge defines additional things not in the base packages.

  • So reading the documentation of tkz-berge is enough? Thanks

  • @Laxmana I didn't think to look at the doc, I just looked at the source:-) But no I doubt that tkz-berge documents the features of the packages it uses, that would be unusual. Jan 14, 2017 at 19:32
  • Actually, there's quite a lot of tkz-berge that is not explained in the doc (when I last looked), so reading the source might also be helpful.
