forest – Drawing (linguistic) trees

The pack­age pro­vides a PGF/TikZ-based mech­a­nism for draw­ing lin­guis­tic (and other kinds of) trees. Its main fea­tures are:

  • a pack­ing al­go­rithm which can pro­duce very com­pact trees;
  • a user-friendly in­ter­face con­sist­ing of the fa­mil­iar bracket en­cod­ing of trees plus the key-value in­ter­face to op­tion-set­ting;
  • many tree-for­mat­ting op­tions, with con­trol over op­tion val­ues of in­di­vid­ual nodes and mech­a­nisms for their ma­nip­u­la­tion;
  • the pos­si­bil­ity to dec­o­rate the tree us­ing the full power of PGF/TikZ; and
  • an ex­ter­nal­iza­tion mech­a­nism sen­si­tive to code-changes.
