GLE

GLE

GLE (Graphics Layout Engine) is a high quality graphics package for scientists, combining a user friendly interface with a full range of facilities for producing publication quality graphs, diagrams, posters and slides.

GLE provides LaTeX quality fonts together with a flexible graphics module which allows the user to specify any feature of a graph (down to the line width of the subticks, for example).

Complex pictures can be drawn with user defined subroutines and simple looping structures.

GLE comes with a user interface QGLE.

The strength of GLE lies in its reproducibly and in its adaptability. Rather than a set of pixel values, a GLE diagram is stored as a series of vector drawing instructions. A line is stored as a line, a circle as a circle. The GLE package itself takes these instructions and converts them into a recognisable graphic.
