From Brian Wade, IBM:
This package provides a simple way to draw line drawings in a BookMaster document. The steps are:
Using XEDIT, draw your picture in a file of filetype BOXES,
using these characters for edges, intersections, and arrows:
box is this: @---^---\ | | | "---+---! | | | $---_---% arrows are: up [ down ] left < right >
Invoke BOX2BMS EXEC, passing as a parameter the filename
of the BOXES file (e.g., BOX2BMS MYPIC).
This will give you a file of filetype SCRIPT that contains
the markup necessary to include your drawing in a BookMaster
document via the :cgraphic. tag.
In your BookMaster document, code like this:
:cgraphic scale=auto width=80. .im (mypic script) :ecgraphic.
- When you are writing a big document you might have lots of BOXES files all on the same filemode. CVTBOX EXEC converts all of the BOXES files on a given filemode, producing a SCRIPT file for each corresponding BOXES file.
I didn't write this with the intention of giving it away, so don't laugh too hard at the source... but someone asked me recently "how'd you draw that picture" so I thought I would post this package in response to that question.
