epix: Mathematically accurate plotting tool1

Package available in: [trunk] [8.0] [7.0] [6.0] [2.1]

ePiX (pronounced like "epic" with a soft "k", cf. "TeX"), a collection of batch-oriented utilities for *nix, creates mathematically accurate line figures, plots, and movies using easy-to-learn syntax. LaTeX and dvips comprise the typographical rendering engine, while ImageMagick is used to create bitmapped images and animations. The user interface resembles that of LaTeX: You prepare a short scene description in a text editor, then "compile" the input file into a picture. Default output formats are eepic (a plain text enhancement to the LaTeX picture environment), eps, pdf, png, and mng.
