The Inkscape Source Code Documentation
While the standard doxygen documentation can be accessed through the links in the header, the following documents are additionally available to the interested reader.
Inkscape's classes and files in the main directory can be grouped into the following categories:
See also the other directories until doxygen allows setting links to those doc files.

Inkscape loads and saves a subset of the SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics)
format, a standard maintained by the WWW consortium.
Inkscape user interface should be familiar from CorelDraw and similar
drawing programs. There are rectangles, ellipses, text items, bitmap
images and freehand curves.
As an added bonus, both vector and bitmap objects can have alpha
transparency and can be arbitrarily transformed.
Inkscape supports multiple opened files and multiple views per file.
Graphics can be printed and exported to png bitmaps.
Some of the import and export features are provided using the packages
dia, libwmf-bin, pstoedit, skencil, imagemagick, and perlmagick.
Other extensions use ruby, libxml-xql-perl, python-numpy, and python-lxml.
You must have these packages to make full use of all extensions and effects.
