My aim is to create a "coiled framed box" in order to typeset this
element: http://bayimg.com/DAmPOaADc (CAUTION-Box). Easy, consistent and
flexible solutions very welcome.
In order to do so, I started using pst-coil as a frame around this text.
Lately I have been wondering about the usage of "period" in pst-coil.
I can hardly understand, why coilwidth and coilheight are related, but I
cannot understand why "period=" does not have an effect here.
To me it is neither "Periodenlänge" (length) nor "Periodenanzahl"
(absolute value/number of periods occuring).
In my example:
1) period approx 3,5
2) period > 10
Looking forward to explainations of "period" and - even more - simpler
solutions drawing such a coilbox (slanted line)?
