Edd Barett, a TeXLive maintainer for OpenBSD has just committed lpe (an extensible drawing editor for LaTeX) to the ports tree. People who are familiar with my posts on this forum knows that when it comes to graphics and TeX I am PostScript bias (PSTricks and even pure PostScript more recently). However, I am curios to see if anybody is using lpe and how does it compare to other common approaches to create images for TeX (MetaPost, PSTricks, TikZ/PGF, Asymptote, Matlibplot, Sketch etc.)? It looks might be an interesting tool for Lua users (I am not one of those people).

Note that this isn't a forum, but a question and answer site. I'm not sure if your post actually fits here. It's technically not about a (La)TeX problem you have. – Martin Scharrer Jul 15 '12 at 5:39
@Martin: you might want to change the plural form of "posts" into singular form? Also, AFAICS, there is a question posed, no? – morbusg Jul 15 '12 at 6:27
@morbusg: Thanks, it should be indeed singular. I didn't said there is no question per se, but that is not really a solvable problem which a "correct" answer. This sounds more like a discussion or a listing of drawbacks/benefits and, as I wrote, I'm not sure if it really is a good fit here. – Martin Scharrer Jul 15 '12 at 10:03
