Euclidean geometry drawing language

Eukleides is a Euclidean geometry drawing language. The package includes eukleides, a compiler which lets you typeset geometry figures within a (La)TeX document. This program is also useful to convert such figures in EPS format or in various other vector graphic formats. It also includes xeukleides, an X-Window front-end which makes possible to create interactive geometry figures. This program is also useful to edit and tune some Eukleides code.
