File README.txt for package curve2e
        [2015/07/11 v.1.60 Extension package for pict2e]

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 Bezier
splines with their control nodes specified in polar form is available.

This version solves a conflict with package eso-pic.

This version of curve2e is fully compatible with pict2e dated 2014/01/12
version 0.2z.

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 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.
