What is SVG?

From http://w3.org/Graphics/SVG/

- "SVG is a language for describing two-dimensional graphics and graphical
applications in XML."

What are the svg2pdf/png/ps tools?

I thought this was fairly obvious. ;)

From http://www.cairographics.org/

- "Cairo is a vector graphics library designed to provide high-quality display
and print output."

This is the library used by these tools to convert an SVG into a PDF, PNG or PS

What is the SVGbatch tool?

Simply a script that will automate the conversion of a complete directory of
SVGs to PNG, it can be run from WB or Shell (more options are available then).

What is the fc-cache tool?

It's part of the fontconfig package.

From http://www.fontconfig.org/

- "Fontconfig is a library for font customization and configuration."

When run it will update/build a cache over all the fonts installed on your
system. This cache is used by the SVG tools to find/pick the appropriate
fonts for rendering text when needed.

Where do I get SVGs?

Search around, there's plenty of cliparts, icons, etc out there, some good
places to start would be:

- http://www.openclipart.org/
- http://clipart.nicubunu.ro/
- http://www.inkscape.org/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?Galleries
- http://svgicons.sourceforge.net/

This is a neat batch conversion or single conversion program for SVG files, to convert them to PNG, which is much more widely supported on MorphOS. It's also very easy to use. Would have thought others would have commented positively about it already, since 2017, maybe even me !!
