Include and extract SVG pictures using Inkscape

The package provides a command similar to \includegraphics command of the graphicx package, which enables the inclusion of SVG images using Inkscape.

\includesvg[<options>]{<svg filename>}

A variety of options is available, including width, height, and path of the SVG. The image is converted to an appropriate format, using the \write18 mechanism to execute a shell command, and the package also offers the means of saving a PDF, EPS, or PNG copy of the image, at the same time.

The documentation shows an example using an SVG created from the high energy particle physics analysis package ROOT.
