1.1.1 LATEX like tools
pict2e Removes the restrictions in the LATEXpicture environment.
epic/eepic The epic package uses the drawline command instead of the line com-
mand, so a line can be specified by its endpoints instead of its length. However,
the slope of the line is still restricted. The eepic package allows for arbitrary
slopes, but is not compatible with pdfTEX.
overpic The overpic package adds TEX labels.
MetaPost Produces purified EPS files that work with either LaTeX or PDFTeX.
Asymptote 3D oriented.
