Synopses & Reviews
A reference as well as a tutorial, this tome provides users with the information to programmatically create high-quality graphics with TeX and LaTeX software and the enhanced PSTricks graphic package as well as hundreds of examples with ready-to-run code for hardcopy or PDF output. From how to draw simple lines on curves to creating three-dimensional images, trees, knots, and charts and adding color gradients and shadows, this manual details how to create graphics via programming rather than interactive drawing. A survey of the realm of LaTeX graphic packages is also included, along with methods for incorporating high-quality graphics in LaTeX documents.
