When creating a picture with pstricks I want to do some simple calculations fot proper positioning. Therefore I use the "fp"-Package. It turns out that the usage of the \FPeval-command seems to shift the whole pspicture-coordinatesystem a bit to the right. Every time an \FPeval is executed. Has anyone suggestions to work around this phenomenon?

\usepackage[nomessages]{fp}% http://ctan.org/pkg/fp
\usepackage{pstricks, pst-node, pst-plot}


 \begin{pspicture}[showgrid](-1, -1)(2, 1)

      \cnode(1, 0){0pt}{itemID B}%


      \cnode(1, 0){0pt}{itemID B}%



enter image description here


There is a missing % at the end of \FPeval


There is a trailing space without it. PSTricks macros itself kill all glue but not other macros. What kind of calculations do you need? You have the possibility of PS coordinates like (! whatever do you need) which can calculate any coordinates.
