Date: July 11, 2002 4:31:04 PM CEST
There has been a considerable upgrade on this existing package. The new version should make its way to a mirror near you in a day or two. Jim Hefferon ftpmaint at tug.ctan.org =========================================================================== The following information was provided by our fellow contributor. Name of contribution: ePiX Author's name: Andrew D. Hwang Location on CTAN: graphics/epix Summary description: Version 0.8.5 License type: gpl Announcement text given by the contribution's author: - - ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Color, spline, and line width declarations have been simplified, and arbitrary-width lines are available. Text may be aligned with a reverse LaTeX-style option. Line segments may be specified by points other than their endpoints. A bug that affected drawing of arrowheads has been fixed, and the code has been cleaned up. Users are strongly encouraged to upgrade, since some of the new declarations are not backward-compatible. The package includes a script that will bring old input files into compliance with the new syntax. - - ----------------------------------------------------------------------

ePiX – Utility for mathematically accurate, camera quality plots and line figures

ePiX is a collection of batch-oriented utilities for Unix-like systems. It creates mathematically accurate line figures, plots, and movies using easy-to-learn syntax. and dvips comprise the typographical rendering engine, while ImageMagick is used to create bitmapped images and animations. The user interface resembles that of itself: you prepare a short scene description in a text editor, then “compile” the input file into a picture. Default output formats are eepic (a plain text enhancement to the picture environment), eps, pdf, png, and mng.
