axohelp.c version is 1.2 2018/02/14

Axodraw2 is a package that defines macros for drawing Feynman graphs
in LaTeX documents.

It is an important development from the axodraw package, but since it
is not completely backwards compatible, we have given the style file a
changed name.

Compared with axodraw, many new features have been added, with new
types of line, and much more flexibility in their properties: For
details see the documentation.

In addition, it is now possible to use axodraw2 with pdflatex, as well
as with the latex-dvips method. However with pdflatex (and also
lualatex and xelatex), an external helper program, axohelp, is used to
perform the geometrical calculations needed for the pdf code inserted
in the output file.  The processing involves a run of pdflatex, a run
of axohelp, and then another run of pdflatex.

The files in the distribution are:

ax­o­draw2 – Feyn­man di­a­grams in a doc­u­ment

This pack­age de­fines macros for draw­ing Feyn­man graphs in doc­u­ments.

It is an im­por­tant up­date of the ax­o­draw pack­age, but since it is not com­pletely back­wards com­pat­i­ble, we have given the style file a changed name.

Many new fea­tures have been added, with new types of line, and much more flex­i­bil­ity in their prop­er­ties.

In ad­di­tion, it is now pos­si­ble to use ax­o­draw2 with pdf, as well as with the -dvips method. How­ever with pdf (and also Lua and XeLaTeX), an ex­ter­nal pro­gram, ax­o­help, is used to per­form the ge­o­met­ri­cal cal­cu­la­tions needed for the pdf code in­serted in the out­put file. The pro­cess­ing in­volves a run of pdf, a run of ax­o­help, and then an­other run of pdf.
