Vector graphics editor

A vector graphics editor is a computer program that allows users to compose and edit vector graphics pictures interactively on the computer screen (compare with MetaPost) and save them in one of many popular vector graphics formats such as .CDR, PDF, WMF or SVG. The main difference between this sort of application and those used in Computer Assisted Drafting is that the drawings produced by a vector graphics editor are mostly decorative and are neither intended to represent a real-world structure nor to act as the blueprint for one. Computationally speaking, however, the two processes are closely related.
