# combination of pspicture and psmatrix

In a prior version I have used the psmatrix environment and it works fine, but I failed to have more frames inside (like this figure). Connecting nodes in psmatrix is much easier as in this example. So I would like to get a hint how to.

• use psmatrix for easy connecting codes and also
• use psframes like this figure and able to connect frames inside a frame.... and also connect inner frames to some frames outside....

\ncangle[angleA=-90,angleB=180,nodesepA=9pt,nodesepB=1.5cm]{nodeABA}{nodeABC}
\end{pspicture}

\end{document}


Does anybody have an idea?

Compiling with: pdflatex -enable-write18 thisexample.tex

Any ideas to archive this figure only using psmatrix or a kind of parallel use of both environments?

Use \rnode. And, by the way, test your own examples!
