fig2ps2tex - generate a TeX file for including a PostScript file
Fig2ps2tex generates a TeX file for including a PostScript file in a TeX document. This
involves calculating the bounding box from the Postscript document. The TeX inclusion
file is written to stdout.
There is also Fig2ps2tex.sh for those systems without csh and/or dc (Linux for example).
Note that the psfig macro package provides a more sophisticated approach to including
Postscript files in LaTeX docuements. Fig2ps2tex works with plain TeX however.
Assume the Postscript file is called foo.ps . The command
% fig2ps2tex foo.ps >foo.tex
will create the inclusion file with bounding information. Then include this file in your
TeX document with the command
psfig(1), latex(1), f2ps(1), fig2dev(1), transfig(1).
