jPicEdt is a free software for vectorial drawing. It allows to generate LaTeX code. It has been entirely developed in Java and as such works on any platform.
The generated LaTeX code can use one of the three following format:
- plain LaTeX, using the LaTeX picture environment, or
- LaTeX with extension package epic and eepic, or
- LaTeX with PSTricks.
The drawing is encoded in a XML like format specific to jPicEdt which is embedded inside comments of the generated LaTeX code.
jPicEdt is easily extensible and customizable with BeanShell scripts.
