CTAN update: pgf-spectra

Date: April 26, 2023 9:47:24 PM CEST
Hugo Gomes submitted an update to the pgf-spectra package. Version number: 3.0.0 2023-04-25 License type: lppl1.3 Summary description: Draw continuous or discrete spectra using PGF/TikZ Announcement text:
In the \pgfspectra command, syntax for the key 'lines' has been updated: - it is now possible to specify a continuous range using 'start wavelength to end wavelength', for instance, 'lines={380 to 500}' or 'lines={380 to 500,633}' or 'lines={633,555,380 to 500}'. New keys for \pgfspectra: - axis label - axis label text - axis label position Updated key syntax for \pgfspectra: - lines New command: - \usepgfspectralibrary (loads pgf-spectra libraries) New library 'data' to load spectral lines data, display it in a table or export it to a file. This library provides the commands: - \pgfspectradata (loads data) - \pgfspectratable (displays data in a table) - \pgfspectrawrite (writes data to a file) Some commands from previous versions have been moved to new libraries: - \pgfspectraplotshade and \pgfspectraplotmap moved to new library 'pgfplots' - \tempercolor moved to new library 'tempercolor' - \pgfspectrarainbow moved to new library 'rainbow'

pgf-spectra – Draw continuous or discrete spectra using PGF/TikZ

The purpose of this package is to draw the spectra of elements in a simple way.

It is based on the package pst-spectra, but with some extra options. It relies on PGF/TikZ for drawing the desired spectrum, continuous or discrete.

There are data available for the spectra of 98 elements and their ions (from the NASA database and from NIST). It also allows the user to draw spectra using their own data.
