NAME

       axohelp  - helper program for use of LaTeX package axodraw2 with pdfla-
       tex.


SYNOPSIS

       axohelp [options] [filename]


DESCRIPTION

       Axohelp is a program used with the axodraw2, which is a  LaTeX  package
       for  drawing  Feynman  graphs (and some other simple graphics) in LaTeX
       documents.

       When the axodraw2 package is used with pdflatex (or lualatex  or  xela-
       tex)  it  creates a file with extension .ax1.  This contains specifica-
       tions of the graphics elements.  Axohelp converts this to a  file  with
       extension  ax2  that contains the necessary pdf code.  The .ax2 file is
       read by pdflatex (etc) on its next run, and the contents  of  the  .ax2
       file  are used in the final .pdf output file to draw the desired graph-
       ics.

       The files processed are specified as follows: When the filename on  the
       command  line  is of the form file.ax1, then the input file is file.ax1
       and the output file is file.ax2. If the filename on  the  command  line
       does not have extension .ax1, then this extension is appended.
