What would you use for computer-generated graphics (box-and-connection line drawing) output format with mid-1990s technology?

Was there a common text-based language (TeX package?) or was it more common to do all the processing in your program and out put directly in a binary graphics format (png, gif, ...)?


@papa The only example I've worked with did everything in the program and output binary commands for the stroke device.
