TeXdraw Package

The TeXdraw package consists of a set of macro definitions for the TeX typesetting program. These macros allow the user to produce PostScript drawings from within TeX and LaTeX. The main benefits of TeXdraw accrue from the ability to produce drawings from within TeX, using TeX fonts for labelling the drawing. Basic drawing features include:

TeXdraw has been designed to be extensible. Drawing "segments" are relocatable, self-contained units. Using a combination of the begingroup / endgroup mechanism in TeX and the gsave / grestore mechanism in PostScript, drawing segments allow for local changes to the scaling and line parameters. Using TeX's macro definition capability, new drawing commands can be constructed from drawing segments. The extensibility features include,
