       carmetal — dynamic geometry software


       carmetal [file.zir[z]]


       This manual page documents briefly the carmetal command.

       This  manual  page  was written for the Debian distribution because the
       original program does not have a manual page.

       carmetal is a dinamical geometry software written in  Java.  Ruler  and
       compass  constructions  can  be  changed  by  dragging one of the basic
       construction points. The construction follows immediately. The  student
       can  check  the  correctness  of the construction and gain new insight.
       Carmetal allow exercices generations (jobs)  automaticly  checked  with
       html export, and  html diaporama generations.

       Arithmetic  computations,  numerical solutions, curves and functions go
       beyond classical constructions. It is even possible to construct in  3D
       using advanced macros. Other geometries, hyperbolic or elliptic, can be
