[vox-tech] Re: latex help: drawing arrows

ok, here's the solution.  i guess it looks ok.

pete

\newcommand{\Next}{\texttt{next}\ }
\newcommand{\Step}{\texttt{step}\ }

In contrast, \Step will cause gdb to step into the function and begin executing
the function line by line.

\begin{figure}[H]
\begin{pspicture}(0,0)(10,10)
\psset{unit=.4cm}
\rput[l](0,22){/* flawedswap.c: A flawed function that swaps two integers. */}
\rput[l](0,21){\#include $<$stdio.h$>$}
\rput[l](0,20){void swap(int a, int b);}
\rput[l](0,18){int main(void)}
\rput[l](0,17){\{}
\rput[l](1,16){int i = 4;}
\rput[l](1,15){int j = 4;}
\rput[l](1,13){printf("i: \%d, j: \%d\backslash{n}", i, j);}
\rput[l](1,12){swap(i, j);}
\rput[l](1,11){printf("i: \%d, j: \%d\backslash{n}", i, j);}
\rput[l](1,9){return 0;}
\rput[l](0,8){\}}
\rput[l](0,6){void swap(int a, int b)}
\rput[l](0,5){\{}
\rput[l](1,4){int c = a;}
\rput[l](1,3){a = b;}
\rput[l](1,2){b = c;}
\rput[l](0,1){\}}

\rput[l](17.5,13){step}
\psbezier[linearc=.25, linewidth=.75pt, linecolor=gray]
{->}(12,13)(20,12.5)(20,12.4)(5,12)
\rput[l](22,9){step}
\psbezier[linearc=.25, linewidth=.75pt, linecolor=gray]
{->}(5,12)(27,11.5)(27,4.5)(5,4)

\rput[l](10.5,3.5){step}
\psbezier[linearc=.25, linewidth=.75pt, linecolor=gray]
{->}(5,4)(12,3.8)(12,3.4)(5,3)
\rput[l](10.5,2.5){step}
\psbezier[linearc=.25, linewidth=.75pt, linecolor=gray]
{->}(5,3)(12,2.8)(12,2.4)(5,2)

\rput[l](18.5,2.5){step}
\psbezier[linearc=.25, linewidth=.75pt, linecolor=gray]
{->}(5,2)(12,2.8)(25,0.0)(10.5,10.5)

\end{pspicture}
\label{fig:step}
\caption{Step goes into the function}
\end{figure}
