    Inserting Graphs Into Latex

    Hello everyone,

    I am looking for a way to more effectively use Latex for notes in class. My main problem is graphs. What is the fastest way to insert a graph into a Latex document? (The graphs can be either functions f(x) = something or a vector in 2 or 3D (preferably using the parametric form as input)). Is there a quick way to do this? If not, is there a way to do this at all?

    I use TeXnicCenter by the way, but if there is something much better, I'll switch.

    Thanks,
    -Keilan

    What I've been doing is using GeoGebra to generate the actual graph (it's free and wonderful - google for it an spend a happy hour or two playing with it) then save it as an .eps file, then include it in my LaTeX file using:

    \begin{figure}[htbp]
    \centering
    \includegraphics{<file-name>.eps}
    \label{fig:<figure-label>}
    \protect \caption {Solution to problem \ref{<equation-label>}}
    \end{figure}

    ... where "htbp" defines the positioning (can't remember what the individual tags mean).

    You also need:

    \usepackage [dvips] {graphics}

    in your package declarations.


    I know there are ways of using in-line code but all the ways I've seen are not particularly good.
