SYNOPSIS

       Process somefile.tex by pdftex/pdflatex.

       pdfTeX \pdfliteral sections for further processing by pdftex.

       tpic \special description see e. g.:  Goossens,  Rahtz,  Mittelbach:  The  LaTeX  Graphics
       Companion, Addison-Wesley, 1997, pp. 464.

BUGS

       Spline  curve  shapes not fully authentic (unknown algorithm).  Bounding box does not care
       for line thickness (groff pic feature).  Splines might  be  outside  bounding  box.   Fill
       color does not work correctly for arrowheads (pic limitation).
