A new package has been installed on tug.ctan.org and it should make its way to your favorite mirror in the next day or two. Thanks again for the contribution, Jim Hefferon ====================================================================== The following information was provided by the package's contributor. Name of contribution: tpic2pdftex.awk Author's name: Hartmut Henkel Location on CTAN: graphics/tpic2pdftex Summary description: Converting tpic \special's into \pdfliteral's by awk License type: gpl Announcement text given by the package's contributor: - - ---------------------------------------------------------------------- The experimental awk-script tpic2pdftex.awk builds one bridge between the "pic" graphics language and pdfTeX. What tpic2pdftex.awk does: We start from one or more graphics described by the venerable pic language (see e. g. file example.pic), embedded inline within pdfTeX or pdfLaTeX code, and limited by classical .PS and .PE markers as known from groff. The pic graphics might be annotated by TeX or LaTeX text. This pic/TeX language-mix file is piped through the (groff-)pic preprocessor and the tpic2pdftex.awk script. The result is a TeX file with inline \pdfliteral{} sections, for further processing by pdftex or pdflatex. - - ---------------------------------------------------------------------- You can have a look at the package at http://tug.ctan.org/tex-archive/graphics/tpic2pdftex although you may get a better network connection by visiting a mirror of CTAN that is near to you; see http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/README.mirrors

tpic2pdftex – Use tpic commands in pdf

The AWK script converts pic language, embedded inline (delimited by .PS and .PE markers), to \pdfliteral commands.
