A simplified way to insert TikZ graphics into actual documents.

One of the observations I seem to be making is, that the technology-intensive part of the world is still using such tools as LaTeX, to typeset documents and vector-based graphics, such as Mathematical equations which I’ve included in previous parts of this blog, even though we know that GUI-based applications have existed for some time, that also typeset and do graphics…

I like ‘LaTeX’, even though I never learned the full syntax. LaTeX defines the document in a type of textual syntax. And there is even a system of TeX macros, which defines a sub-language called “TikZ”, that defines entire figures, sketches and plots, using a textual syntax.

Edit: Alternatively, there is a sub-language called “PSTricks”, which offers yet another way to do the same thing

And so a question which strikes me as important is, how to use these languages, even though I don’t know the syntax. And the answer is, ‘I use a GUI.’ That GUI mainly consists of the application ‘LyX’.
