fig2ps2tex(1) generate a TeX file for including a PostScript file

fig2ps2tex file

## DESCRIPTION

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.

## USAGE

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

\input{foo}
