The packages pst-circ and pst-3dplot have a macro \ABinterCD, which sets a node at the intersection point of the linear functions which are build through the points A-B and C-D. The coordinates can be drawn easily with the \SpecialCoor feature. This allows to take from nodes/points only one coordinate. For example \psdot(A|B) sets a dot at the point with the x coordinate of A and the y coordinate of B. If we have the intersection point of two linear functions and called E, then we can draw the coordinate lines with
It is from the point on the x axis (x coordinate from E, y coordinate from (0,0)) to E itself and then to the point of the y axis (x coordinate from (0,0) and y coordinate from E).

\pscustom and \psbezier
to get a filled area colored, use always the first \psbezier curve with four and following ones with with three arguments!

Building a path
		\CW % (2,2)(3,4)(4,1)(4,-3)
		\reversepath % now (4,-3)(4,1)(3,4)(2,2)
		\scale{-1 1}
		\CW % (-2,2)(-3,4)(-4,1)(-4,-3)
		\closepath % clockwise path
		% \pscircle moves the current path to (-1,0)
		\pscircle(0,0){1}% clockwise: circle not filled (scale -1 1)!!
	}% The inner of the circle is _not_ inside the path
