Question Math Graph Paper Software for Linux ?


Hi, I just made a search on this subject on this forum and didn't find nothing related so here I am asking: Does anyone knows if there exists a software for Linux (preferably Fedora 5) that allow me to make Math Graph Paper to do my homework?

Any help will be welcome...

BTW, I have tried some internet sites that do the job, but what if at any given time I can't get online?

Best regards to everyone and thanks in advance.

Greetings from México.

Start your browser and go to www.google.com/linux, and search for "graph paper". You can find templates to print your own. For log-log, log-linear, and polar, thers is a LaTex package.

OK, this probably isn't very helpful but it's an interesting task for the uber-nerdy:

Write a program in postscript to do it.

Most people think postscript is just a file format, but actually it's a language, and a pretty weird one at that. The advantage of doing it this way it that you can make very very fine lines. Quite often programs which generate postscript will assume you don't want lines thinner than some value and simply won't make them, but with the postscript language itself you can decide...

inkscape, as well as being a brilliant vector-graphics package, can do this very easily!

I always find learning by example is the best:
