PicTeX – Picture drawing macros for TeX and LaTeX

PiCTeX is an early, and very com­pre­hen­sive draw­ing pack­age, that mostly draws by plac­ing myr­i­ads of small dots to make up pic­tures. It has a ten­dency to run out of space, most es­pe­cially of al­low­able di­men­sions reg­is­ters; pack­ages m-pictex and pictexwd deal with the reg­is­ter prob­lem, in dif­fer­ent ways.

Note that full doc­u­men­ta­tion may be bought via the PC-TeX site, though a com­mand sum­mary is avail­able as free soft­ware.

Al­ter­na­tively, a front-end pack­age such as math­sPiC, which cov­ers all of PiCTeX and has a com­plete and free man­ual, could be used.
