Summary description: Macros for producing graphical and textual representations of swimming performances
License type: lppl

Announcement text given by the contribution's author:
- ----------------------------------------------------------------------
The package provides two macros that produce representations of a swimmer's 
performances.  The user records data in a text file and specifies as arguments
 of the macros the date range in which she is interested; the macros extract 
the relevant information from the file and process it as follows. 
 * \swimgraph produces a graph of the times in a single swimming event 
  (specified as an argument), plotting long course and short course times in 
  separate lines.  Records and qualifying times, stored in text files, may 
  optionally be included on the graph.
 * \swimtext produces a written record of the times in all events.

Files of current world and Canadian records are included.

The package requires the PSTricks and keyval packages.  For attractive output,
it requires also a color output device.
