- LaTeX Graphics
LaTeX has a variety of languages for specifying images, such as xypic, pgfplots, and TikZ. By including the necessary pacakges or setup commands in
docinfo/latex-preamble, these can all be generated at once, in the manner of the example earlier.
Images described by the Asymptote language can be processed in a manner entirely similar to that for images described with LaTeX graphics languages. This requires having the
asyexecutable on your system and locatable via the
- Sage Plot
If you have a version of Sage installed on your system, you can specify the path to the executable and obtain images described by Sage code. See the sample article for more information.
