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