Announcement text: 
Draw Nassi-Schneidermann charts

Even in the age of OOP one must develop algorithms. Nassi-Shneiderman
structure charts are a well known tool to describe an algorithm in a
graphical way. This package StrukTeX presents some macros for generating
those structure charts in a LaTeX document.

The package provides the most important elements of a structured box chart,
including processing blocks, loops, mapping conventions for alternatives,
etc. Diagrams are drawn using the picture environment (using pict2e for
preference). The author is Jobst Hoffmann. See also pict2e.

If one is working with (X)emacs and AUCTeX the "drawing" process is
supported by structex.el, a style file which knows the syntax of most
of the commands from the StrukTeX package.


Thanks for the upload.
