Searching for geometric (simple) drawing software


Hi,
I'm looking for a program for drawing simple geometric figures (Circle and tangents, arcs, lines, etc) and that I can print or better, insert in LaTex. I have to define angles, lengths,etc.
I'm writing some problems for school kids.
I thought LOGO (Turtle) would be OK, but I don't know if I can copy paste figures.
Is there something newer than LOGO?

Thanks

seba

Hi
Maybe take a look at xfig (you need the transfig packet as
dependency too)
It is simple and according to the xfig reference manual (under
help button, in the section printing/exporting) it exports to
LaTex as well.
Only thing; you cannot (afaik) give in exact numbers and angles, in a command line (like autocad has) but whilst drawing them, you can see how long/what angle etc.
And in globals you can set xfig to show the length of the lines.
Hope this answers your question.

LOGO that is a language i thought? is it available for linux?
In my msx days i had it on my computer i remember

Regards

Use 'InfoSEEK' with "LOGO" and scroll down

or even better:
