The tioga kernel¶ ↑
This is the reference document for using of the tioga kernel to create figures and plots using Ruby, PDF, and TeX. Please understand that this is more like a dictionary than a textbook.
It is written assuming that you've already familiarized yourself with how things work to the level covered in the Tutorial.
Without that background, much of the following may be incomprehensible.
Page Layout and System Control
Strokes (Lines and Curves)
Special_Paths (Contours, Splines, Steps, Arrows, Error Bars)
Images (JPEGs and Sampled Data)
Shading (Radial and Axial Blends)
Extras for Plots
Facilities for Storing Numeric Data
For more information on PDF, consult the Adode PDF Reference document.
It's a huge collection of details (over 1000 pages at last count), and I've borrowed extensively from it in some of the following descriptions of methods that map directly to PDF operations.
