PStricks offers an extensive collection of macros for generating PostScript that is usable with most TeX macro formats, including Plain TeX, LaTeX, AMS-TeX, and AMS-LaTeX. Included are macros for colour, graphics, pie charts, rotation, trees and overlays. It has many special features, including a wide variety of graphics (picture drawing) macros, with a flexible interface and with colour support. There are macros for colouring or shading the cells of tables.
The package pstricks-add contains bug-fixes and additions for pstricks (among other things).
PSTricks uses PostScript \special commands, which are not supported by PDF(La)TeX. This limitation may be overcome by using either the pst-pdf or the pdftricks package, to generate a PDF inclusion from a PSTricks diagram.
Note that this is one of a pair of catalogue entries for PSTricks; the other one (PSTricks) is acting as a “stub”, while editorial work on catalogue entries for PSTricks contributed is completed.
