The TeX-Usergroup Dresden meets in the university terms at Borsbergstraße 34, 01309 Dresden. The meetings are organized by Carsten Vogel. From the beginner up to the Guru everybody is very welcome.

## PSTricks

• I held a presentation about PSTricks at the TeX user meeting Dresden on June, 11th 2004.
The PSTricks package is very comprehensive. The documentation of PSTricks coveres several hundreds of pages. So, only some aspects of PSTricks can be described in the course of such a presentation.

• The package pst-linesty.sty is obsolete now since the macros from this style file are already implemented in pstricks-add.sty.

The usage of \psset{linestyle...} is documented in the user guide for pstricks-add.

Please, contact me if you find a bug in the linestyle macros.

• gplPts.sty: is a package that provides the gnuplot-point symbols as LaTeX macros. You need the files to get it working.

Save gplPts.sty where LaTeX can find it and save gnuplot.pro where dvips can find it.

See the following user guide for more informations on the installation and the usage:
• gplPts-doc.pdf with the source file
• gplPts-doc.tex
• Maybe you have to generate your own postscript header file for gplPts.sty. You can do this with the help of
• Carmen Hagemeister made me aware of a bug in gnuplot.pro.
• 1st: The linux version doesn't run well under Windows. Therefore, a special Windows version is provided above.
• 2nd: The document structure comments generated by eps2pro.tex are not quite right. This caused problems with DVI-viewers like xdvi.
Please, don't use eps2pro.tex but download gnuplot.pro for your operating system from one of the two links above. The bug is fixed in the files gnuplot.pro provided above.

• The package pst-bezier provides LaTeX-macros for Bezier splines
• with arbitrary many interpolation points and
• with automatically computed control points which can separately be changed by many options (you can set the location of some or all control points or you can influence the parameters for the automatical computation of the control points).
