       eukleides - Eukleides interpreter to PostScript


       eukleides [OPTION...] FILE


       Eukleides  is a computer language devoted to elementary plane geometry.
       It aims to  be  a  fairly  comprehensive  system  to  create  geometric
       figures, either static or dynamic.  It allows to handle geometric types
       of data like points, vectors, lines, circles, or conics.

       The eukleides program is  useful  to  convert  Eukleides  scripts  into
       Encapsulated  PostScript  files.   It  may also interpret scripts using
       interactive variables to  multi-page  PostScript  documents  which  can
       later   be   transformed   into   animated   GIFs  using  for  instance
       ImageMagick’s convert(1).


       -l, --locale[=LANG]
              Use localized keywords.  With no  argument  given,  the  current
              locale  is  set  to  the value of the LANG environment variable.
              Otherwise LANG has to be a valid locale identifier, e.g. ’fr_FR’
              or ’fr_FR.utf8’, depending on the default charmap.  This feature
              may be disabled.

       -o, --output[=OUTPUTFILE]
              Set an output file name.  With no  argument  given,  the  output
              stream is set to standard output.

       -#, --interactive=STRING
              Modify interactive variables.

       -a, --animate=STRING
              Animate interactive script.

       -b, --batchmode[=DATAFILE]
              Don’t  stop  for  input.   If  given,  use  DATAFILE  instead of
              standard input.

       -v, --version
              Print version number and exit.

       -h, --help
              Print immediate help and exit.
