From the README:
This is a set of macros for drawing high-quality line diagrams to
include in TeX, LaTeX, or similar documents. The macros were
originally intended for electric circuit diagrams containing
fundamental elements, amplifiers, transistors, and basic logic gates,
but several tools and examples for other types of diagrams are also
included. The advantages and disadvantages of such a system are
similar to those of TeX itself, which is macro-based and non-wysiwyg,
with ordinary character input.
The macros evaluate to drawing commands in the pic "little language,"
which is easy to read and learn. Pic is well suited to line drawings
requiring parametric or conditional components, fine tuning,
significant geometric calculations or repetition, or to drawings that
are naturally block structured or tree structured. Arbitrary formatted
text can be included. Free TeX- and LaTeX-compatible interpreters
for m4 and pic are readily available.
