I often need drawings for Euclidean geometry problems in
documents. I don't like any of the software I've seen, so
I would like to do it in Octave.
1. Am I re-inventing the wheel? In other words, does there
exist a perfectly reasonable Octave package which already
does this?
2. I've tried a few simple things, and have immediately come
up against a plotting problem: I can't find a plotting
command that forces the scales on the two axes to be the
same. For example, what looked like perfectly good circles
and squares on my X11 screen come out as ellipses and
parallelograms on Postscript output. So:
How does one force a 2D plot to have equal scales
on both axes?
