README
This is the mglTeX package. It allows you to create high-quality
publication-ready graphics directly from MGL scripts embedded into your LaTeX
document, using the MathGL library (http://mathgl.sourceforge.net).
================================================================================

If the "mgltex.sty" file (the package itself) wasn't included with this
distribution, you can build it yourself executing:

    1. (pdf)latex mgltex.ins

If the "mgltex.pdf" file (the documentation) wasn't included with this
distribution, you can build it yourself executing the following steps:

    1. (pdf)latex mgltex.dtx
    2. makeindex -s gglo.ist -o mgltex.gls mgltex.glo
    3. makeindex -s gind.ist -o mgltex.ind mgltex.idx
    4. (pdf)latex mgltex.dtx

Steps 2 and 3 are optional, and are only for the creation of an index and a
glossary.

The file "sample.pdf" is intended as a tiny sample of the capabilities of
mglTex and MathGL, as well as a brief introduction to the package. You can use
it as an alternative documentation if you want to start using the package right
away. If the file wasn't included with this distribution, you can build it with
the following steps:

    1. Run '(pdf)latex sample.tex' to create the MGL scripts
		2. Compile the produced .mgl scripts with mglconv (part of MathGL)
		3. Run '(pdf)latex sample.tex' a second time to include the graphics

Alternatively, you can run '(pdf)latex --shell-escape sample.tex' twice in
order to allow mglTeX to automatically call mglconv.

mgl – High-quality graphics from MGL scripts embedded in documents

This package allows you to create high-quality publication-ready graphics directly from MGL scripts embedded into your document, using the MathGL library.

Besides following the philosophy of allowing you to concentrate on content rather than output (mgl takes care of producing the output), mgl facilitates the maintenance of your document, since both code for text and code for plots are contained in a single file.

MathGL. is a fast and efficient library by Alexey Balakin for the creation of high-quality publication-ready scientific graphics. Although it defines interfaces for many programming languages, it also implements its own scripting language, called MGL, which can be used independently.
