       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
       two purposes:

       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

       -c, --convert-to-native
              Do not show a GUI. Instead convert the specified file to  native
              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.


       More detailed user documentation is available  from  help:/kig  (either
