carmetal — dynamic geometry software
This manual page documents briefly the carmetal
This manual page was written for the Debian

original program does not have a manual page.
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
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 explored.
