What is Fig4TeX ?

Fig4TeX is a set of TeX macros designed to create a figure at compilation time of the TeX document, and to write text on it in a straightforward way, using the TeX fonts, under total control of the user. These macros can also be used to write a legend on an existing figure, given as a file created by any other software (see Final document   in next section).
The macros can be used with the traditionnal plain TeX environment as well as with LaTeX, in both DVI and PDF modes. They have been designed from the user's point of view and can be helpful to design a figurative drawing as well as to build an accurate geometric construction based on points in 2D or in 3D, so that this macro package can even be considered as a kind of geometric modeller.
