**TeXCad32 **

**Version 4.4.1.6 Mar 20, 2004**

### Freeware Drawing Program for LaTeX and Windows

**Highlights:**

- Runs from Win95
- WYSIWYG-Design
- Parametrised curves and graphs of functions composed with +,-,*,/,^, sqrt x, exp x, ln x, sin x, cos x, arcsin x, arccos x..... and all what can be made out of this
- LaTeX labels
- Export to emtex-specials or postscript
- Pdf-support via postscript
- Color supports
- Drawing of sets of curves
- Clipping

- Coor and linewidth ale editable retroactively
- TeXCad-compatibility (.PIC-files)
- Scaling and moving

**Drawbacks**:

- The program is not yet finished and will never be
- Some error messages generated by the programming language Delphi(c) are still in german
- It has some buggy points. If you find one, tell me here

#### No longer supported commands are

- Bezier curves
- Ovals have to be constructed out of single elements
- Vectors, because arbitrary directions are possible

If you cannot (or don't want to) do without : TeXCAD 4.1 is another Texcad-successor that supports this.

**Examples are given on the german page**

### How to draw pictures

Best: start the program and play around. Then read the manual and follow the example at the end.

### How to include pictures in Latex documents

This is described in a separate document.

**Licence**

To Texcad32 the LPPL (Latex Public Project Licence) applies.

If you continue to use TeXCad32 I would appreciate if you send me a picture postcard.

**Plans for TeXCad32 Version 5 (even if it's not clear whether this will come )**

- All actions are put to an protocol, and with this undo and scripting

**Hall of Fame**

TeXCad32 is one of the successors of Texcad of G. Horn and J. Winkelmann. More ideas coming into this version came from Prof. Dr. K. Menke, R.Ebe and M. Mayr-Willius and the people who developped Turbo-Pascal/Delphi. The manual would have been even more ugly without Koma-Script.
