Date: June 24, 2002 1:48:26 PM CEST
A new package has been installed at tug.ctan.org and should make its way to your favorite mirror in a day or so. Thanks for the upload, Jim Hefferon ftpmaint at tug.ctan.org ==================================================================== The following information was provided by our fellow contributor. Name of contribution: ePiX Author's name: Andrew D. Hwang Location on CTAN: graphics/epix Summary description: LaTeX preprocessor for creating mathematically accurate figures License type: gpl Announcement text given by the contribution's author: - ---------------------------------------------------------------------- ePiX ("epic" with a soft "k":) is a command-driven (non-GUI) preprocessor for creating flexible, mathematically accurate line figures containing mathematical typography. The language is simple and easy to use; detailed documentation and sample files are included. ePiX is written for and tested on GNU/Linux, but should run on any Unix-like operating system; a C++ compiler and GNU Bash are required for ordinary use. ePiX is very usable, but in a fairly rapid state of development; feedback (bug reports, feature requests, general suggestions) is welcome! - ----------------------------------------------------------------------

ePiX – Utility for mathematically accurate, camera quality plots and line figures

ePiX is a collection of batch-oriented utilities for Unix-like systems. It creates mathematically accurate line figures, plots, and movies using easy-to-learn syntax. and dvips comprise the typographical rendering engine, while ImageMagick is used to create bitmapped images and animations. The user interface resembles that of itself: you prepare a short scene description in a text editor, then “compile” the input file into a picture. Default output formats are eepic (a plain text enhancement to the picture environment), eps, pdf, png, and mng.
