# tkz-base — for Cartesian coordinate system

Release 4.21c 2024/01/16

## Description

The package `tkz-base`

provides some tools like a Cartesian (rectangular) coordinate system to other packages like `tkz-euclide`

or `tkz-fct`

. With this package, you can draw coordinate axis, grids, draw points, the principle is to specify the position of any point in two-dimensional space by an unique couple of coordinates.

## Requirements

## Installation

The package `tkz-base`

is present in TeXLive and MiKTeX, use the package manager to install.

You can experiment with the `tkz-base package by placing all of the`

distribution files in the directory containing your current tex file.

You can also placing all of the distribution files in the directory : /texmf/tex/latex/tkz.

## How to use it

- compiles with utf8, pdflatex, lualatex;
- To use the package tkz-base, place the following lines in the preamble of

your LaTeX document.

usepackage{tkz-base} (loads TikZ and some tikzlibraries).

To avoid package conflicts, you need to load xcolor before TikZ or tkz-base or tkz-euclide

## Documentation

Documentations for `tkz-base`

are available on CTAN and your distribution.

## Examples

All examples given in documentation will be stored on my site : http://altermundus.fr as standalone files, ready for compilation.

Other examples, in French, are on my site.

## Compatibility

The new version of `tkz-base`

is *not* fully compatible with the version 3 but the differences are minor

## History

- 4.21c Correction of bug tkz-obj-axes line 35, missing a symbol
`%`

(thanks Pascal Nuns)

Replace in TKZdoc-base-points.tex p 462 tkzDefCentroid(A,B,C,O) by tkzDefBarycentric(A,B,C,O)

- 4.2c adaptation to the new version of tkz-euclide.
- 4.05b Correction of an option (tkzDrawY). Removing axesmin.tex Move from newififtkz@integer to base.sty
