Summary description: A package for the creation of Nassi-Shneiderman diagrams.
License type: lppl

Announcement text: 
Draw Nassi-Schneidermann charts

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

The package provides the most important elements of a
Nassi-Shneiderman diagram, 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.

Version v133 contains a new implementation of the \p... macros and
Babel support.

This package is located at 
.  More information is at
(if the package is new it may take a day for that information to 
appear).  We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org .
