I came across this package called tkz-fct, used for drawing functions and graphs. Are there any articles or papers that show how to download it and learn it? Thank you. (I am using Winedit as my editor)

    You can download it on CTAN: ctan.org/pkg/tkz-fct It is part of TeX Live and MiKTeX, though, so if you have one of either installed you should already have it installed on your machine. The documentation is in French (I don't know whether a translation exists). – Skillmon likes topanswers.xyz Oct 22 '18 at 22:30

    For non-French speaking users who want to plot functions in with TikZ-based methods, there is also the pgfplots package and the datavisualization library. – user121799 Oct 22 '18 at 23:00
  • Which types of packages or documents do you need to make it work? – CuriousEinstein Oct 23 '18 at 0:35

    \usepackage{pgfplots} for pgfplots. In order to address someone specific in a comment, you need to use @marmot, say. – user121799 Oct 23 '18 at 0:48
  • You can ask here :). – manooooh Oct 23 '18 at 2:26

tkz-fct is part of texlive and miktex so you should have it anyway or can easily install it via tlmgr or the miktex equivalent.

It includes an 89 page manual that is full of examples (although the text is in french). In texlive you can view that via texdoc tkz-fct or see the pdf on the web at http://texdoc.net/texmf-dist/doc/latex/tkz-fct/tkz-fct-screen.pdf

  • It seems to me that it is also necessary to install gnuplot on the operating system. – AndréC Oct 23 '18 at 9:43
  • Thanks @AndréC . I guess that's what section 3.1 of the manual says, which has a diagram of the program flow (I haven't actually read the manual:-) .... – David Carlisle Oct 23 '18 at 10:15
