pictex

Picture drawing macros for TeX and LaTeX

PicTeX is an early, and very comprehensive drawing package, that mostly draws by placing myriads of small dots to make up pictures. It has a tendency to run out of space, most especially of allowable dimensions registers; packages m-pictex and pictexwd deal with the register problem, in different ways.

Note that full documentation may be bought via the PC-TeX site, though a command summary is available as free software.

Alternatively, a front-end package such as mathsPiC, which covers all of PicTeX and has a complete and free manual, could be used.
