CTAN sub­mis­sion – Euk­lei­des (ge­om­e­try draw­ing lan­guage)

Date: Au­gust 27, 2002 10:13:30 AM CEST
----- For­warded mes­sage from Chris­tian Obrecht ----- As a math­e­mat­ics teacher us­ing LaTeX, I needed a tool to draw ge­om­e­try di­a­grams in my doc­u­ments. Since I didn't find any­thing sat­is­fy­ing I de­cided two years ago to cre­ate Euk­lei­des, a Eu­clidean ge­om­e­try draw­ing lan­guage. The Euk­lei­des dis­tri­bu­tion comes with a com­piler which trans­lates Euk­lei­des code into PSTricks code, and a graph­i­cal fron­tend named Xeuk­lei­des. It is re­leased un­der GPL. Var­i­ous kinds of bi­na­ries are avail­able: RPM, De­bian, Free BSD, and soon Mac OS X. You'll find more in­for­ma­tions in the home page: http://perso.wanadoo.fr/obrecht/ Euk­lei­des is now used by peo­ple all over the world, for in­stance in Ja­pan, see: http://www.mlb.co.jp/linux/sci­ence/eu­k­lei­des/ It has been ref­er­enced by the FSF: http://www.gnu.org/di­rec­tory/Math­e­mat­ics/Misc/eu­k­lei­des.html Last year, Dr James Foster, Mem­ber­ship Sec­re­tary of the UK TUG, made a pre­sen­ta­tion about it at the an­nual gen­eral meet­ing: http://uk.tug.org/UK-TuG/AGM-2001/ Since some TeX users may be in­ter­ested in Euk­lei­des, I thought you may want to add the Euk­lei­des dis­tri­bu­tion to CTAN. ----- End for­warded mes­sage ----- Thanks for your sub­mis­sion. I in­stalled the new files in CTAN:/tex-archive/sup­port/eu­k­lei­des/ Rein­hard Zierke for the CTAN team

eu­k­lei­des – A ge­om­e­try draw­ing sys­tem

Euk­lei­des is a ge­om­e­try draw­ing lan­guage. The Euk­lei­des dis­tri­bu­tion pro­vides two in­ter­preters that pro­duce En­cap­su­lated PostScript and able PSTricks macros. The dis­tri­bu­tion also pro­vides a pack­age al­low­ing to use Euk­lei­des code within a source file.

Euk­lei­des may be com­piled un­der MinGW, and a win32 bi­nary is also avail­able.
