A simple interface to create TikZ graphics. Just build pictures using
Figure data constructors, and get the TikZ script using the function
figuretikz. Use the function
tikzpicture to insert the TikZ script in
the LaTeX document. And do not forget to import the
tikz package in the
Please, note that this module is not intended to be imported in the same module than Text.LaTeX.Packages.TikZ. This module is itself a self-contained alternative of that module. If you still want to use both modules, please, use qualified imports to avoid name clashes.
In the Examples directory of the source distribution, the file
contains a complete example of usage of this module with several pictures.

Path function, f.
The figure of a path. A path (in this context) means a function from an interval to
the plane. The image of such a function is what this function returns as a
An additional argument is needed to set the precision of the curve.
The actual implementation builds a spline of degree one joining different points of the image. Given that the interval is (a,b) and the precision argument is ε, the points in the spline will be f(a), f(a+ε), f(a+2ε), and so on, until reaching f(b). The smaller is ε, the closer is the figure to the original image.
Here is an example with a logarithmic spiral.
spiral :: Figure spiral = LineWidth (Pt 2) $ pathImage 0.01 (0,4) $ \t -> ( a * exp t * cos (b*t) , a * exp t * sin (b*t) ) where a = 0.1 ; b = 4
