Curve2e.sty version: 1.54 filedate: 27 June 2015 This file is an extension of the package pict2e.sty which extends the standard picture LaTeX environment according to what Leslie Lamport specified in the second edition of his LaTeX manual. This further extension allows to draw lines and vectors with any non integer slope parameters, to draw dashed lined of any slope, to draw arcs and curved vectors, to draw curves where just the interpolating nodes are specified together with the slopes at the nodes; closed paths of any shape can be filled with color; all coordinates are treated as ordered pairs, i.e. �complex numbers�. Some of these features have been incorporated in the 2011 version of pict2e; therefore this package avoids any modification to the original pict2e commands. Curve2e now accepts polar coordinates in addition to the usual Cartesian ones; several macros have been upgraded and a new macro for tracing cubic B�zier splines with their control nodes specified in polar form is available. This version is fully compatible with pict2e version 0.2x dated 2011/05/01. If you specify \usepackage[<pict2e options>]{curve2e} The package pict2e is automatically invoked with the specified options.

## curve2e – Extensions for package pict2e

The package extends the drawing capacities of the pict2e that serves as a LaTeX 2e replacement for picture mode. In particular, curve2e introduces new macros for lines and vectors, new specifications for line terminations and joins, arcs with any angular aperture, arcs with arrows at one or both ends, generic curves specified with their nodes and the tangent direction at these nodes.
