I want to minimize conversion error when working with PSTricks and (La)TeX. The conversion error really affects the accuracy of bounding box, the thickness of LaTeX's
\fbox and the thickness of PSTricks stroke.
When I specify a length for
- page layout dimension:
- TeX box dimension:
- PSTricks object dimension:
which unit should we use to minimize the conversion? Should we use a single unit throughout the document?
Because the existing answers don't explain how to minimize the conversion error, I will emphasize and rephrase my questions above. Based on the existing answers, my understanding is as follows.
TeX naturally works in
sp and PostScript works naturally in
bp. If I want to avoid conversion in TeX block, provide the lengths in
sp. But if I work in PSTricks block, I must provide the length in
However, I have one question:
If I define a
\pspicture dimension in
bp, how does PSTricks ask TeX to reserve the space without making a conversion error from
