I’m interested in the answers to two questions. What you are trying to do just doesn’t make sense. The quality of the drawings is unbeatable.

No program that I know of is capable of recovering geometric constructions with labels from a bunch of pixels. Is it a difficult task to open an.


I’ve seen your pictures. If PDF images covert allowed to be included together with your main TeX source file aka input filethen you can generate a PDF for each PSTricks diagram using standalone document class to get a tight image without white borders compiled with latex-dvips-ps2pdf for faster compilation.

Erel Segal-Halevi 2, 6 22 TikZ claims to have been designed “with the shortcomings of PStricks in mind. So Tikz wins in this scenario. Absent a few times when dipping into the PS itself, TikZ and pstricks are very comparable in most ways.


Once you are familiar with the basics of TikZ, you can quickly use almost any feature by looking in the manual for 10 minutes. What is the learning curve like for the two tools? Tikz has a great-looking manual and is clearly clnvert powerful.

Home Questions Tags Users Unanswered. Source code is available at https: Here, using pdflatex -shell-escape does not make sense for creating tight standalone diagrams.

It is made as a single-file module. Tikz seems a bit more on the “drawing” end of things. If we specify a temporary directory with –tempdirthe -k option should also be used to prevent the temporary directory from being deleted.

If so, which is the better design, and why? I don’t have experience writing TikZ extensions, but from a quick glimpse of the TikZ source code, it seems to be easy to understand and extend, compared to other TeX macro packages I came across.

PStricks has a significant ecology of extra packages that have been built on top of it; TikZ is too new to have many such things. To avoid many compilations, one can put every environment in the same file and use the option standalone provides to compile each picture in a separated page each with the correct adjusted size.


[pstricks] how to convert pstricks to eps?

LaTeX code would have been better because it is part of the. Instead, describe the problem and what has been done so far to solve it. And as Tomek already said, it makes no sense to convert a pixel based image format to a vector based format because you can’t really benefit from the advantages.

The manual looks beautiful, though. When a pstake figure has a caption, it can be referred by a reference, like PSTricks figure from external file.

eps to pstricks, pgf or eepic (impossible?)

Well, I would have liked to paste nicer pictures into my document than the scanned ones. It is not recommended as we will waste much time to compile during the development phase.

I like the ‘saved from trash’ example on page ! Quoted from my comment here click:. And as it happens by these programs, the import of. The source PSTricks commands are stored in a.
