I defined some small pstricks makro:


And now I want the output of \leftwall reflected, to produce something like \rightwall. In this specific situation, I could just change the signs of the x coordinates, but this is ugly. How can I do this in general? I'm looking for a command like \psrotate from the pstricks-add package where I can specify two points that define a line along which I can reflect my \leftwall.

Please show me the minimal code and use CODE tag please :D – xport Jan 1 '11 at 14:42

extend the example in a case that \leftwall and \rightwall allow coordinates to get rid of the \rput

\newcommand\rightwall{\psscalebox{-1 1}{\leftwall}}

 \leftwall \rput(0,0){\rightwall}

So the core of your answer (apart from other improvements to the code) is: Use \psscalebox{-1 1}{stuff}. Together with rotations, reflections on arbitrary lines can be made. – Turion Jan 1 '11 at 17:23
