GL2PS is an OpenGL to PostScript printing library.
GL2PS is a C library providing high quality vector output for any OpenGL application. The main difference between GL2PS and other similar libraries (see section 7) is the use of sorting algorithms capable of handling intersecting and stretched polygons, as well as non manifold objects. GL2PS provides advanced smooth shading and text rendering, culling of invisible primitives, mixed vector/bitmap output, and much more...
GL2PS can currently create PostScript (PS), Encapsulated PostScript (EPS) and Portable Document Format (PDF) files, as well as LATEX files for the text fragments. GL2PS also provides limited, experiemental support for Scalar Vector Graphics (SVG) and Portable LaTeX Graphics (PGF) formats.
Adding new vector output formats should be relatively easy; meanwhile, you can use the excellent pstoedit program to transform the PostScript files generated by GL2PS into many other vector formats such as xfig, cgm, wmf, etc.
What's New in This Release:
This release adds full support for SVG, improved line stippling, sorting of text and bitmap elements, and a new interface for printing device-specific strings in the output stream.
