There were some changes in plot2d that make this function incompatible
with the examples of the interpol package. This is fixed in Maxima 5.13,
since plotting examples in interpol package are now made with function
color = red,
key = "Lagrange polynomial",
point_size = 3,
color = blue,
key = "Sample points",
To plot isolated points and points joined by lines with draw2d, see
Mario Rodriguez Riotorto
