I need to find some postscript drawing tool to make a dense pack of circles (apollonian circles). Somebody has an idea ?

    Thanks for the reply, but that's not what I'm looking for. I need something that can draw (in postscript) a pack of circles of random radii, all circles touching themselves without overlaping. Something like a pack of spheres put randomly in a box, but just in 2D.

    You might try Mathematica. Other than this, there is a screensaver from SGI that draws Apollonian circles. The truth is that your request is of such narrow interest that you would do well to learn how to program so that you can write your own program to draw Apollonian circles. I estimate that the program might take a page or two to write.
