C library providing vector output for OpenGL applications
GL2PS is a C library providing high quality vector output for any OpenGL application. The main difference between GL2PS and other similar libraries is the use of sorting algorithms capable of handling intersecting and stretched polygons, as well as non manifold objects. GL2PS provides advanced smooth shading and text rendering, culling of invisible primitives, mixed vector/bitmap output, and much more…
GL2PS can currently create PostScript PS, Encapsulated PostScript EPS, Portable Document Format PDF and Scalable Vector Graphics SVG files, as well as LATEX files for the text fragments. GL2PS also provides limited, experimental support for Portable LaTeX Graphics PGF. Adding new vector output formats should be relatively easy; you can also use the excellent pstoedit program to transform the PostScript files generated by GL2PS into many other vector formats such as xfig, cgm, wmf, etc.
