This is the README file for gastex package. GasTeX: Graphs and Automata Simplified in TeX GasTeX is a set of LaTeX macros which allow to draw very easily graphs, automata, nets, diagrams, etc... under the picture environment of LaTeX. Author: ------- Paul Gastin <http://www.lsv.ens-cachan.fr/~gastin> Copyright: 2006 by Paul Gastin ---------- This program can be redistributed and/or modified under the terms of the LaTeX Project Public License Distributed from CTAN archives in directory macros/latex/base/lppl.txt. Installation: ------------- In order to use gastex you only need two files: - gastex.sty which contains the definition of all the LaTeX macros (this file could be in your working folder or where other .sty files are). - gastex.pro which contains all the postscript procedures (this file could be in your working folder but it is best placed where the tex.pro file is). Usage: latex+dvips(+ps2pdf) ------ - Compile the source file with latex (not pdflatex) and generate the ps file with dvips. One may then use ps2pdf to get a pdf file. Remarks: -------- - gastex mainly generates postscript code so the pictures cannot be seen with a dvi-viewer. One has to generate a ps file (latex+dvips) and view it with a ps-viewer. One can also generate a pdf file (latex+dvips+ps2pdf) and view it with a pdf-viewer. - gastex does not work with pdflatex since it produces postscript code which cannot be interpreted by a pdf viewer. Instead, one should generate the pdf file with latex+dvips+ps2pdf. Examples: --------- - Several examples are provided on the gastex web page at http://www.lsv.ens-cachan.fr/~gastin/gastex/gastex.html - ex-gastex.tex contains some examples to learn gastex and to test your installation. - ex-beamer-gastex.tex shows how gastex may be used with beamer in order to produce very nice animated slides. You have to compile the file through latex-dvips-ps2pdf (not pdflatex). Documentation: -------------- See http://www.lsv.ens-cachan.fr/~gastin/gastex/gastex.html The best is to learn with the examples (see above). Comments in the file gastex.sty provide documentation for all macros. Enjoy!

GasTeX – Graphs and Automata Simplified in TeX
GasTeX is a set of LaTeX macros which enable the user to draw graphs, automata, nets, diagrams, etc., very easily, in the LaTeX picture environment.
The package offers no documentation (per se), but offers a couple of example files in the distribution, and more on its home page.
GasTeX generates its own PostScript code, and therefore doesn't work directly under pdfLaTeX.
