GLE(1) General Commands Manual GLE(1)


qgle — A Graphical Interface to GLE




This manual page documents briefly the qgle command.

This manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the original program does not have a manual page. Instead, it has documentation in the PDF format at /usr/share/doc/gle-graphics/gle-manual.pdf.

qgle is a graphical interface to GLE. The current GUI contains a preview window that can receive messages from GLE and display the resulting EPS file. In addition, it can open GLE and EPS files directly (using Ghostscript and GLE). It now has the capability to add and edit simple objects, such as, lines, circles and arcs (snapping to a grid if required). It can also change various properties of the objects, such as, line width, and color. The perpendicular line and tangential line commands can be used to produce a line starting perpendicular or tangential to an existing object. OSnap can be used for the end point of a line.
