0001 About Khipu 0002 =========== 0003 - Khipu is an advanced Mathematical function plotter application of KDE Education Project. 0004 - It is a replacement for KmPlot. 0005 - The basic idea of Khipu is to help teachers and Professors in understanding the behaviour of mathematical functions,surfaces etc. 0006 - Khipu can work in both 2D and 3D space. 0007 0008 Basic Features 0009 ============== 0010 - Khipu can draw any 2D and 3D plots supported by Analitza (A mathematical library that Khipu uses for its backend) 0011 - User can save their work in .khipu file and later he/she can restore the work 0012 - If khipu is closed accidentally , the autosave feature will let the user to restore the unsaved work of the previous session. 0013 - User can add the plots from the files known as Plot-Dictionary file (.plots files). These files contain the name and equation of the plot. 0014 So, user does not have to type a big equation rather, he/she can plot the function from its name. 0015 - User can hide/show the plots and also he/she can remove/edit the existing plots. 0016 - User can save the plots as PNG image and also take the snapshot of the plots into the clipboard. 0017 - Aprat from this, khipu has numberous features to work with mathematical functions and spaces. 0018 - For more information and screenshots of Khipu , visit http://userbase.kde.org/Khipu 0019 0020 Backend Information 0021 ==================== 0022 - Analitza is a library that work with mathematical objects. 0023 - Analitza add mathematical features to your program, such as symbolic computations and some numerical methods; 0024 for instance the library can parse mathematical expressions and let you evaluate and draw them. 0025 - For more information : http://api.kde.org/4.x-api/kdeedu-apidocs/analitza/html/index.html 0026 0027 How To Build/Run Khipu 0028 =================== 0029 - To successfully build the application, you need the following packages installed on your system 0030 1) Analitza (sudo apt-get install analitza-dev) 0031 2) QJson (sudo apt-get install libqjson-dev) 0032 3) libkdeedu (sudo apt-get install libkdeedu-dev) 0033 0034 - To build the application,you need to type the following commands on the command prompt. 0035 1) cd <project_name_path> 0036 2) mkdir build 0037 3) cd build 0038 4) cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config --prefix` -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=debugfull .. 0039 5) make 0040 6) sudo make install 0041 7) khipu
