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.
