aximate is a set of PERL routines that allows you to make simple animations – sorry: aximations. It was originally set up to make animated Feynman diagrams (see also here) based on axodraw (that's where the name comes from).

All the examples of the manual (see below) can be found in manual.pl. In order to run it, you need to put aximate.pm into the same directory. Then, for example:

$ ./manual.pl manual1 > manual1.tex
$ latex manual1
$ dvips manual1
$ ps2pdf manual1.ps
$ convert -delay 5 manual1.pdf manual1.gif
The resulting file manual1.gif is an animated gif which can be viewed in a browser, for example. Look into manual.pl for more aximations (manual1, manual2, ...). That file is meant as a starting point for your own aximations.

Comments are welcome. In particular, if you create some new aximations, let me see them!
