                        Sparkline.sty

Sparklines are intense, simple, wordlike graphics (so named by Edward
Tufte). In lieu of a more detailed introduction, Professor Tufte's site
has an early release of a chapter on sparklines, see
www.edwardtufte.com. A PHP implementation can be found at
http://sparkline.sourceforge.net/.

A sparkline can be added using the sparkline environment. Also, you can
add sparkling rectangles for the median and special sparkling dots in
red or blue. Only use sparklines with pdflatex, or with PostScript
output; sparklines cannot appear in a dvi-file. The sparklines package
uses pgf, and does not work with pictex. It but might work if
pictexwd.sty is used, but that has not been tested.

Read sparklines.pdf for more details including history.

sparklines – Draw­ing sparklines: in­tense, sim­ple, word­like graph­ics

Sparklines are in­tense, sim­ple, word­like graph­ics (so named by Ed­ward Tufte). In lieu of a more de­tailed in­tro­duc­tion, Pro­fes­sor Tufte's site has an early re­lease of a chap­ter on sparklines. A PHP im­ple­men­ta­tion may be found at SourceForge.

A sparkline can be added us­ing the sparkline en­vi­ron­ment. Also, you can add sparkling rect­an­gles for the me­dian and spe­cial sparkling dots in red or blue. The pack­age re­quires pdfla­tex; sparklines can­not ap­pear in a dvi file. The sparklines pack­age uses pgf, and does not work with pictex.
