# pstricks-base – PostScript macros for TeX

PStricks offers an extensive collection of macros for generating PostScript that is usable with most TeX macro formats, including Plain TeX, LaTeX, AMS-TeX, and AMS-LaTeX. Included are macros for colour, graphics, pie charts, rotation, trees and overlays. It has many special features, including a wide variety of graphics (picture drawing) macros, with a flexible interface and with colour support. There are macros for colouring or shading the cells of tables.

The package pstricks-add contains bug-fixes and additions for pstricks (among other things).

PSTricks uses PostScript `\special` commands, which are not
supported by PDF(La)TeX. This limitation may be overcome by using
either the pst-pdf or the
pdftricks package, to generate a
PDF inclusion from a PSTricks diagram.

Note that this is one of a pair of catalogue entries for PSTricks; the other one (PSTricks) is acting as a “stub”, while editorial work on catalogue entries for PSTricks contributed is completed.
