LinuxFocus: MagicPoint [presentation software]

This article describes the features of the free software
MagicPoint. It is one among the very few free presentation software
for X-Window. The presentation is described by a simple but
powerful language.

“Presentation software became popular a few years ago and have
now been integrated into the office sotfware packages by default.
Before that, in order to make a presentation using a free system,
the old method of the retroprojection with the slides (using latex
Slitex ) was used.”

“But with the retroprojection of the computer’s screen, the
presentation take another dimension and make the presentation look
better. Magic Point is a presentation software working with every
X11/Unix system.”

“It comes from the BSD world and is developped by a japanese
team. Writing a Magicpoint presentation is made through a text
file. We will study its syntax later on.”
