- ----------------------------------------------------------------------
ePiX ("epic" with a soft "k":) is a command-driven (non-GUI) preprocessor 
for creating flexible, mathematically accurate line figures containing 
mathematical typography. The language is simple and easy to use; detailed 
documentation and sample files are included. ePiX is written for and tested 
on GNU/Linux, but should run on any Unix-like operating system; a C++ compiler
 and GNU Bash are required for ordinary use.

ePiX is very usable, but in a fairly rapid state of development; feedback 
(bug reports, feature requests, general suggestions) is welcome!
