carmetal — dynamic geometry software
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
