NAME
transfig - creates a makefile for portable LaTeX figures
SYNOPSIS
transfig [ -L language ] [ -M makefile ] [ -T texfile ] [ -I macrofile ] [ -V ] [ control_specs figfile ... ] ...]
DESCRIPTION
Transfig creates a makefile to translate figures described in Fig code or PIC into a specified LaTeX graphics language. PIC files are identified by the suffix ".pic"; Fig files can be specified either with or without the suffix ".fig" . Transfig also creates a TeX macro file appropriate to the target language.
OPTIONS
The language specifier must be either epic, eepic, eepicemu, latex, pictex, ps, eps, psfig, pstex, textyl, tpic, or null. The specifier psfig is like the ps specifier, except that it make use of the psfig macro package. The specifier pstex is like psfig, except that it uses LaTeX to process formatted (special) text. The specifier null results in the figures being replaced by empty boxes of the appropriate size. If no language is specified, epic is the default. The names of the makefile and TeX macro file can be set with the -M and -T options. To send output to standard output for either option, use "-" for the filename. The default names are "Makefile" and "transfig.tex", respectively. If the -I option is specified, then a com- mand to read in macrofile is inserted into the TeX macro file. If the -V option is specified, the program version number is printed only. Control specifiers are -m mag set the magnification at which the figure is rendered (default 1.0). -f font set the default font family used for text objects (default "rm"). -s fontsize set the default font size (in points) for text objects (default 11*mag). -o option pass the specified option string through to fig2dev. If there is no scaling, the default font is an eleven point roman font. Language and control specifiers may occur more than once; they affect the translation of files which appear to their right in the argument list. If no files are specified, then "*.fig" is assumed.
