On Tue, 15 Feb 2005, Apostolos Syropoulos submitted version 1.00 of the 


to CTAN.

      MathsPIC(Perl) is a development of the earlier
      <xref refid='mathspic-dos'>MathsPIC(DOS)</xref> program;
      implemented as a Perl script, it is much more portable than the
      earlier program.  MathsPIC
      parses a plain text input file and generates a plain
      text output-file containing commands for drawing a diagram.
      Version 1.0 produces output containing PiCTeX and (La)TeX
      commands, which may then be processed by plain TeX or LaTeX in
      the usual way.  MathsPIC also outputs a comprehensive log-file.
      MathsPIC facilitates creating figures using PiCTeX by providing
      an environment for manipulating named points and also allows the
      use of variables and maths (advance, multiply, and divide) - in
      short - it takes the pain out of PiCTeX.
