A wxSVGFileDC is a device context onto which graphics and text
can be drawn. It is intended to represent the basics of writing SVG format
which are a open web format used to describe vector graphics though it
may also include raster graphics. This version implements most of the
vector drawing routines present in a wxDC in a simple way. It
does not do stippled or dashed or bitmapped vectors, or gradient fills.
Thus you can use the same code to draw on the wxWindows screen Display
context and on a SVG vector graphics file.
You can view the results of the first 4 tests on-line, with
the wxWindows code used to draw lines, filled objects and text shown.

Suggestions for improvements much welcomed!
You need to download a wxWindows release, currently 2.4.2 (stable) or 2.5.1 (development)
and look in the contrib directory
Viewing SVG Output
You can view SVG graphics using several implementaions,
including browser plugins and SVG editors. As the specification and
editors mature, the results will become more consistent. The current
Adobe plugin works well on Windows and platforms. Amaya is also good on
the Linux platform, while JASC's WebDraw does all except the rotated
