About this site ...

This site contains a lot of stuff that might be useful for other people. As I profitted a lot from Open Source software, I decided to put this stuff on my website. Feel free to contact me in case of questions, comments, suggestions for improvements ...


2012-07-27: Updated texpic2epspdf.sh to version 0.2.2-alpha

This new version includes a bugfix for the removal of the extension of the input file name when passing it to the LaTeX macro. Goto combinedgraphics page.

2012-07-16: Updated combinedgraphics to version 0.2.2

New parameters (vecheight/vecwidth) allow to scale combined (EPS or PDF)/LaTeX graphics to a certain width or height without affecting the font. This is useful, e.g., when publishing such graphics in a journal that requests a certain width. Furthermore, texpic2epspdf.sh is improved and generates graphics with the precise width/height of the graphics now. Goto combinedgraphics page.
