I need some advice on graphics programs. My environment is Xenix 386
2.3 running on a 386 AT clone, most of the time as the only user, so
that I can usually shutdown and boot DOS (I don't have VP/ix). I have
a LaserJet II running the Elan troff package which allows the
inclusion of graphics files from MacPaint, PC Paintbrush, TIFF,
and raw format. My problem is I have no way to produce those files
on this system, and I don't have a big budget. I want to add
simple graphics to the documents I produce, and I dont't need
(nor can I afford) fancy WYSIWIG systems. I have only a Hercules
compatible graphics adapter (which Xenix doesn't recognize anyway).
SO I am appealing for recommendations from the net on fairly cheap,
MS-DOS drawing programs for producing files which I can copy to
Xenix (it has `doscp') and include in my troff documents.
I would likely have to include the purchase of a mouse also,
so recommendations are in order there too.
