CTAN update: pstricks-base
The main package pstricks now defines two optional arguments for pasting code into PostScript: precode=.. and postcode=.... Both can beused by other package's to get rid of an \pstVerb before calling a macro.
This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/graphics/pstricks/base More information is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/pstricks-base We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org . Please join a users group; see http://www.tug.org/usergroups.html .

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 ordinarily 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.
PSTricks macros can also generate PDF output when the document is processed XeTeX, without the need for other supporting packages.
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.
