This demo includes a single graphical window that displays a curve
X(t) (which you may change in the appropriate textbox in the control
window), a point C that you may change by clicking and dragging it, the
point X(t0), the segment of the tangent line to the curve
X(t) at X(t0)
connecting X(t0) to the closest point (shown in red) on the
line to C, the line segment connecting the red point to C, which is
perpendicular to the tangent line, and the pedal curve traced out by
the red point as t0 runs from its minimum to its maximum
change t0, use the following buttons:
[<]: Decrease t0 by one step.
[>]: Increase t0 by one step.
[<<]: Decrease t0 until it reaches its minimum
[>>]: Increase t0 until it reaches its maximum
