```Rodolphe,

Needs["NumericalMath`SplineFit`"]

Use this statement...

Show[Graphics[{}],
Frame -> True,
PlotRange -> {{-10, 10}, {-10, 10}},
GridLines -> Automatic,
ImageSize -> 500];

except substitute the PlotRange that you want for your function. Then click
off the points for your curve and copy them.

For example, here are some points I clicked off, copied and pasted into my
notebook.

pts = {{-6.59751, -3.49975}, {-4.02183, -1.27227},
{-1.22411, 1.38633}, {1.17394, 1.45819}, {3.572, -1.05671},
{6.14768, -3.71532}, {8.45691, -6.37392}};

Then I created a spline function.

spline = SplineFit[pts, Cubic]
SplineFunction["Cubic", "{0., 6.}", <>]

This plots the resulting curve.

ParametricPlot[spline[u], {u, 0, 6}, Compiled -> False,
Frame -> True,
PlotRange -> {{-10, 10}, {-10, 10}},
GridLines -> Automatic,
ImageSize -> 500];

Or perhaps you don't want a spline function, but just want to connect the
points by straight lines. Then

Show[Graphics[
{AbsolutePointSize,
Point /@ pts,
Line[pts]}],
Frame -> True,
PlotRange -> {{-10, 10}, {-10, 10}},
GridLines -> Automatic,
ImageSize -> 500];

The DrawGraphics package, at my web site, has a command DrawIndexedPoints
that plots a set of clicked off points and numbers them. You can then easily
edit the points by adding, replacing or changing existing points.

I want to put a graph but without function since I must trace myself the
function so I want the graduations but no functions ...
thx
