My question is perhaps related to Fredrik earlier post. I read API doc
(understood about 30%)
I am basically looking for a way to manupulate vector graphics in
Python. So far I have been reading up on SVG and looking at the output
from Illustrator and Inkscape (Adobe seems to throw a whole bunch of
proprietary stuff into the files, surprise?not) The images for this
particular project are going to be generated in Illustrator (the program
I am most familiar with) and probably cleaned up with another utility
(possibly python script), after which I was going to do a fair amount of
manipulation (hopefully python script) and the final output goes to the
Fredrick does your lib work with SVG?
Is there a library out there that is particularly nice (has
resize,rotate,copy,paste type functions)for working with SVGs?
Am I married to SVG for absolutely no reason?
As I stated in an earlier post I am new to both Python and PIL (and a
fairly crapy (read not a professional) programmer on top of that :) so
links to source code snippets are much appreciated :) <-- and NO there
will not be any write-this-whole-program-for-me type follow up questions!
