|Description:||Vector graphics language (0.2.2-2)|
Box is a vector graphics language developed to make graphics as easy as possible. Box is in its early stage of development, but it already provides most of the features needed to create quality pictures and figures. Box has many advantages over traditional GUI graphics editors: * Reusability: you can draw things inside a Window; you can then translate, rotate, scale and put it inside another Window; * Transformation matrices can be calculated automatically from constraints given by the user; * Flexible syntax: the philosophy is "don't complain if something is missing, use default values!". You can specify many parameters, but you don't have to! * Even more flexible syntax: if p is a list of points then p.Get gives the third point, p.Get[3.5] gives a point between the third and the fourth and p.Get[(3.5, 1)]... look at the documentation ;-) * You can even draw fractal pictures; * Box compiles under Linux, Mac and Windows. Packages are available for Ubuntu and a zip archive (containing the executable) is available for Windows. Box has also the following features: * Translucency: the alpha channel of colors can be set to draw partially transparent objects; * Radial and linear color gradients can be set very easily, specifying even more than two colors; * Supported output formats are Postscript (EPS), PDF, SVG, PNG.
