# [Tex/LaTex] Comparison of plotting packages

diagramspackages

I was wondering what some differences and relation between common plotting packages/environment:

• picture environment
• PGF/TikZ
• PSTricks
• and some others that are also common
but I don't know yet

for choosing when to choose which, considering:

1. are their purposes different or the
same?
2. which one is more comprehensive, and
which more easy to learn, and which
3. is some extension of some other?
