Nature of problem:
Existing methods for drawing Feynman diagrams usually require some "hard-coding" in one or other programming or scripting language. It is not very convenient and is often time consuming, to generate relatively simple diagrams.
A program is provided that allows for the interactive drawing of Feynman diagrams with a graphical user interface. The program is easy to learn and use, produces high quality output in several formats and runs on any operating system where a Java Runtime Environment is available.
Certain operations (like internal latex compilation, Postscript preview) require the execution of external commands that might not work on untested operating systems.
As an interactive program, the running time depends on the complexity of the diagram to be drawn.
