Pdfrack Home page

I am a happy user of the psfrag LaTeX package. Nervertheless, I sometimes need to use pdflatex to produce pdf document with hyperlinks.

But, since psfrag uses some special Postscript features, it is incompatible with pdflatex which directly generates the pdf document from the LaTeX source. And, there is no pdffrag package :-(

Then, I have developped for my personnal use a hack that uses latex + dvips + some ps to pdf filter, to generates one pdf figure for each ps figure, with the psfrag replacements.

It is hugly, but it is sufficient to me

More details can be found in the README, or the documentation

You download it there.

You can also find it on CTAN, in the /support directory.
