Slideshow: Figure and Presentation Tools🔗

Matthew Flatt
and Robert Bruce Findler

Slideshow is a library for creating presentation slides. Unlike Powerpoint, Slideshow provides no WYSIWYG interface for constructing slides. Instead, like Beamer, a presentation is generated by a program.

To get started, run the slideshow executable, and click the Run Tutorial link.

To learn more about Slideshow, see also “Slideshow: Functional Presentations” [Findler06].

Most of the bindings defined in the manual are provided by the slideshow language, which also re-exports all of racket except for printable<%> (due to backward-compatibility issues) and all of pict.
