CTAN Up­date: pic­t2e

Date: July 1, 2008 3:15:34 PM CEST
On Mon, 30 Jun 2008, Josef Tkadlec sub­mit­ted an up­date to the pic­t2e pack­age. This pack­age was de­scribed in the 2nd edi­tion of ‘LaTeX: A Doc­u­ment Prepa­ra­tion Sys­tem’, but the LaTeX project team de­clined to pro­duce the pack­age. For a long time, LaTeX has in­cluded a ‘pic­t2e pack­age’ that merely pro­duced an apolo­getic er­ror mes­sage. The new pack­age ex­tends the ex­ist­ing LaTeX pic­ture en­vi­ron­ment, us­ing the fa­mil­iar tech­nique (cf. the­graph­ics and color pack­age's) of driver files. The pack­age doc­u­men­ta­tion has a fair num­ber of ex­am­ples of use, show­ing where things are im­proved by com­par­i­son with the LaTeX pic­ture en­vi­ron­ment. Lo­ca­tion on CTAN: /macros/la­tex/con­trib/pic­t2e Li­cense: lppl An­nounce­ment text: ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Changed: ex­tended slope ar­gu­ments for \line and \vec­tor; hor­i­zon­tal and ver­ti­cal lines use PS/PDF op­er­a­tors, too. Added: macros for draw­ing arcs, lines given by end­points, poly­gons; path con­struc­tions (as in PS/PDF); con­trol of shapes of line ends.
This pack­age is lo­cated at http://mir­ror.ctan.org/macros/la­tex/con­trib/pic­t2e . More in­for­ma­tion is at http://tug.ctan.org/info/?id=pic­t2e (if the pack­age is new it may take a day for that in­for­ma­tion to ap­pear).

pic­t2e – New im­ple­men­ta­tion of pic­ture com­mands

This pack­age was de­scribed in the 2nd edi­tion of ‘: A Doc­u­ment Prepa­ra­tion Sys­tem’, but the project team de­clined to pro­duce the pack­age. For a long time, has in­cluded a ‘pic­t2e pack­age’ that merely pro­duced an apolo­getic er­ror mes­sage.

The new pack­age ex­tends the ex­ist­ing pic­ture en­vi­ron­ment, us­ing the fa­mil­iar tech­nique (cf. the graph­ics and color pack­ages) of driver files (at present, drivers for PostScript out­put from , and for use with pdf are avail­able). The pack­age doc­u­men­ta­tion has a fair num­ber of ex­am­ples of use, show­ing where things are im­proved by com­par­i­son with the pic­ture en­vi­ron­ment.
