kig - an interactive geometry program for KDE
kig [-c, --convert-to-native [-o, --outfile filename]]
[KDE Generic Options] [Qt Generic Options]
Kig is an application for interactive geometry. It is intended to serve
o To allow students to interactively explore mathematical figures and
concepts using the computer;
o To serve as a WYSIWYG tool for drawing mathematical figures and
including them in other documents.
With this program you can do geometry on a computer just like you would
on a blackboard in a classroom. However the program allows you to move
and change parts of a geometrical drawing so that you can see how other
parts change as a result.
Kig supports loci and user-defined macros. It also imports and exports
both to and from foreign file formats including Cabri, Dr. Geo, KGeo,
KSeg and XFig.
This application is part of the official KDE edutainment module.
App options, in a variablelist

Kig format. The native Kig file will be written to standard
output unless --outfile is passed.
-o, --outfile filename
Used with --convert-to-native to specify where to save the newly
created Kig file. Not specifying this option, or providing a
filename of - will output the file to standard output.
