svg – Include and extract SVG pictures in LaTeX documents
This bundle contains the two packages svg and svg-extract.
The svg package is intended for the automated integration of SVG graphics into LaTeX documents. Therefore the capabilities provided by Inkscape — or more precisely its command line tool — are used to export the text within an SVG graphic to a separate file, which is then rendered by LaTeX. For this purpose the two commands \includesvg and \includeinkscape are provided which are very similar to the \includegraphics command of the graphicx package.
In addition, the package svg-extract allows the extraction of these graphics into independent files in different graphic formats, exactly as it is rendered within the LaTeX document, using either ImageMagick or Ghostscript.
