FastPicTeX by Dr. med. Harald Stauss 1997-2008 FastPicTeX is a preprocessor for PiCTeX that takes very easy to write macros and converts them to PiCTeX code that can be included in LaTeX documents. FastPicTeX is specifically designed for diagrams of numbered data material, such as line graphs, bar graphs, or xy graphs. A detailed manual for FastPicTeX is included as PDF. Usage of the program is very simple: fastpictex file_in file_out file_in: macro file that contains the data and macros describing the chart. file_out: LaTeX file containing the PicTeX code for the chart. It can be included in a LaTeX document with the \input command. To compile the program, simply change to the directory where you extracted all the files from the archive. Then do the following: cd fastpictex-x.x\src make That's all. Isn't it easy? A binary for DOS/Windows is included. If you find this program useful, please send me a picture postcard of your home town. Otherwise, the GNU general public licence (GPL) applies. Have fun with FastPicTeX ! Harald M. Stauss, MD
