CTAN Update: Circuit_macros

Date: January 15, 2013 10:09:31 AM CET
Dwight Aplevich submitted an update to the circuit-macros package. Summary description: Macros for drawing circuits and other diagrams for LaTeX and the web. License type: lppl Announcement text:
>From the CHANGES file, Version 7.4: New macro lthick. Simplified shadebox. The ifroff macro renamed to iftpic. New configuration file m4defaults.m4. Reworked darrowlibrary for consistency with solid lines and arrows; new macro darc and wrappers Darc, Darrow, Dline; old version included in olddarrow.m4 to ease transition. Macros and examples fixed and made more robust for gpic (where possible).

Circuit_macros – M4 macros for electric circuit diagrams

A set of m4 macros for drawing high-quality electric circuits containing fundamental elements, amplifiers, transistors, and basic logic gates to include in , , or similar documents. Some tools and examples for other types of diagrams are also included.

The macros can be evaluated to drawing commands in the pic language, which is very easy to understand and which has a good power/complexity ratio. Pic contains elements of a simple programming language, and is well-suited to line drawings requiring parametric or conditional components, fine tuning, significant geometric calculations or repetition, or that are naturally block structured or tree structured. (The m4 and pic processors are readily available for Unix and PC machines.)

Alternative output macros can create output to be read by pstricks, TikZ commands for use by the pgf bundle, or SVG.
