On Mon, 19 Feb 2007 Apostolos Syropoulos submitted an update to the 



MathsPIC(Perl) is a development of the earlier MathsPIC(DOS)  program, now 
implemented as a Perl script, being 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. Both the original DOS version and 
the new Perl version are available.
