README

This is the README file for the ellipse package. VERSION Version 1.0, December 2015 SUMMARY Adds the ability to draw ellipses and elliptical arcs on top of the standard LaTeX2e picture environment. LaTeX has many advanced graphics packages now, the most extensive are tikz and pstricks. However, these are also large packages that take long to load and may not always work on all drivers. The standard pict2e package removes many of the previous limitations of the `old' LaTeX |picture| environment and makes it a _lean and portable_ alternative to the more full featured packages. However, even though it can draw circles and circle arcs well, it lacks the ability to draw ellipses, ovals, and elliptical arcs. This package adds these functions on top of the standard pict2e primitives (i.e. the \cbezier command). LICENSE Copyright (c) 2015 Daan Leijen. This software is author-maintained.
