eukleides(1) Eukleides interpreter to PostScript


eukleides [OPTION...] FILE


Eukleides is a computer language devoted to elementary plane geometry. It aims to be a fairly comprehensive system to create geometric figures, either static or dynamic. It allows one to handle geometric types of data like points, vectors, lines, circles, or conics.

The eukleides program is useful to convert Eukleides scripts into Encapsulated PostScript files. It may also interpret scripts using interactive variables to multi-page PostScript documents which can later be transformed into animated GIFs using for instance ImageMagick's convert(1).


-l, --locale[=LANG]
Use localized keywords. With no argument given, the current locale is set to the value of the LANG environment variable. Otherwise LANG has to be a valid locale identifier, e.g. 'fr_FR' or 'fr_FR.utf8', depending on the default charmap. This feature may be disabled.
-o, --output[=OUTPUTFILE]
Set an output file name. With no argument given, the output stream is set to standard output.
-#, --interactive=STRING
Modify interactive variables.
-a, --animate=STRING
Animate interactive script.
-b, --batchmode[=DATAFILE]
Don't stop for input. If given, use DATAFILE instead of standard input.
