  Description     : Produces diagrams for LaTeX documents or html pages

dpic is an application that produces diagrams for LaTeX or html pages.
It uses the pic languague.

The pic language is particularly suited for easily creating line diagrams 
such as electric circuits, and many persons use a package of macros called 
Circuit macros along with the m4 macro processor. The pic language itself 
allows macro definitions, and both pic and m4 macros will be described.

Subject: Sources not in preferred form for modifications
Date: Mon, 18 Oct 2010 21:22:25 -0300
[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
As of release 2010.10.12, dpic's sources are the output of p2c, the Pascal-to-
C translator. The original Pascal code has not been made available by upstream 
because he considers that it is too much effort to get the sources compiled, 
as they are not compiled directly. 

As far as I understand, Debian prefers the sources in the preferred form for 
modifications, so this package can not be uploaded as it is.

If this situation ever changes, I will be glad to finish this package.

Any comments are welcomed.

Regards, Lisandro.
