The package calcE (available at very reasonable price) plots increasing and  
decreasing portions of a graph in different colors simply by including the  
keyword Direction, and/or plots concave up and concave down portions of the  
graph in different colors simply by including the keyword Concavity. In fact
will produce eight different colors!

calcE will also plot continuous colors by using the keyword Rainbow, useful  
when graphing parametric equations.

This is just a smidgeon of the literally hundreds of features of calcE,  
designed to increase the power and ease of use of  Mathematica. 

If you are curious about calcE, demonstration files are available on  
MathSource, items 0204-691 (for Mathematica v2.0) and 0206-435 (for Mathematica  
v2.1 and higher). The full documentation is available as item 0206-750.
Or you can email me for further information.
