This is the reference document for using of the tioga kernel to create figures and plots using Python, PDF, and TeX. Please understand that this is more like a dictionary than a textbook. It is written assuming that you have already familiarized yourself with how things work to the level covered in the Tutorial. Without that background, much of the following may be incomprehensible.
Some methods/attributes have not been stabilized yet. The interface may change in near future.
For more information on PDF, consult the Adode PDF Reference document. It is a huge collection of details (over 1000 pages at last count), and I have borrowed extensively from it in some of the following descriptions of methods that map directly to PDF operations.
