FIG2DEV(1)                                                          FIG2DEV(1)




NAME

       fig2dev - translates Fig code to various graphics languages



SYNOPSIS

       fig2dev -L language [ -m mag ] [ -f font ] [ -s fsize ] [ other options
       ] [ fig-file [ out-file ] ]



DESCRIPTION

       Fig2dev translates fig code in the named fig-file  into  the  specified
       graphics  language and puts them in out-file.  The default fig-file and
       out-file are standard input and standard output, respectively

       Xfig (Facility for Interactive Generation of figures) is a  screen-ori-
       ented tool which runs under the X Window System, and allows the user to
       draw and manipulate objects interactively.  This version of fig2dev  is
       compatible with xfig versions 1.3, 1.4, 2.0, 2.1, 3.0, 3.1 and 3.2.

       Xfig version 3.2.3 and later saves and allows the user to edit comments
       for each Fig object.  These comments are output  with  several  of  the
       output  languages,  such  as  PostScript,  CGM,  EMF,  LaTeX, MetaFont,
       PicTeX, (as % comments), tk (as # comments), and pic (as .\" comments).



GENERAL OPTIONS

       -L language
              Set the output graphics language.  Valid languages are box, cgm,
              epic, eepic, eepicemu, emf, eps, gif, ibmgl,  jpeg,  latex,  map
              (HTML image map), mf (MetaFont), mp (MetaPost), mmp (Multi-Meta-
              Post), pcx, pdf, pdftex, pdftex_t, pic, pictex,  png,  ppm,  ps,
              pstex,  pstex_t,  ptk  (Perl/tk),  sld  (AutoCad  slide format),
              textyl, tiff, tk (tcl/tk), tpic, xbm and xpm.

              Notes:
              dvips and xdvi must be compiled with the tpic  support  (-DTPIC)
              for epic, eepic and tpic to work.
              You  must  have  ghostscript  and  ps2pdf,  which comes with the
              ghostscript distribution to get the pdf output  and  the  bitmap
              formats  (png,  jpeg, etc.), and the netpbm (pbmplus) package to
              get gif, xbm, xpm, and sld output.


       -h     Print help message with all options  for  all  output  languages
              then exit.


       -D +/-rangelist
              With  +rangelist,  keep  only  those  depths  in the list.  With
              -rangelist, keep all depths except those in the list. The range-
              list  may  be  a list of comma-separated numbers or ranges sepa-
              rated by colon (:). For example, -D +10,40,55:70,80  means  keep
              only layers 10, 40, 55 through 70, and 80.


       -f font
              Set the default font used for text objects to font.  The default
              is Roman; the format of this option depends on the graphics lan-
              guage  in  use.  In TeX-based languages, the font is the base of
              the name given in lfonts.tex, for instance "cmr" for  Roman,  or
              "tt"  for teletype.  In PostScript, it is any font name known to
              the printer or interpreter.


       -G minor[:major][:unit]
              Draws a grid on the page.  Specify thin, or thin and thick  line
              spacing  in  one  of  several  units.  For example, "-G .25:1cm"
              draws a thin, gray line every .25 cm and  a  thicker  gray  line
              every 1 cm.  Specifying "-G 1in" draws a thin line every 1 inch.
              Fractions may be used, e.g. "-G 1/16:1/2in"  will  draw  a  thin
              line  every  1/16  inch (0.0625 inch) and a thick line every 1/2
              inch.
              Allowable units are: i, in, inch, f, ft, feet, c, cm, mm, and m.
              Only  allowed  for  PostScript, EPS, PDF, and bitmap (GIF, JPEG,
              etc) drivers for now.


       -j     Enable the I18N internationalization facility.


       -m mag Set the magnification at which the figure is  rendered  to  mag.
              The default is 1.0.


       -s size
              Set the default font size (in points) for text objects to fsize.
              The default is 11*mag, and thus is scaled by the -m option.   If
              there is no scaling, the default font is eleven point Roman."


       -V     Print the program version number and exit.


       other options
              The  other  options  are specific to the choice of graphics lan-
              guage, as described below.



CGM OPTIONS

       CGM is Computer Graphics Metafile, developed by ISO and ANSI and  is  a
       vector-based  plus  bitmap  language.   Microsoft  WORD, PowerPoint and
       probably other products can import this format and display  it  on  the
       screen,  something that they won’t do with EPS files that have an ASCII
       preview.

       -b dummyarg
              Generate binary output (dummy argument required after the "-b").


       -r     Position  arrowheads for CGM viewers that display rounded arrow-
              heads.  Normally, arrowheads are pointed, so fig2dev compensates
              for  this  by moving the endpoint of the line back so the tip of
              the arrowhead ends where the original endpoint of the line  was.
              If  the  -r  option  is used, the position of arrows will NOT be
              corrected for  compensating  line  width  effects,  because  the
              rounded  arrowhead  doesn’t  extend  beyond  the endpoint of the
              line.



EMF OPTIONS

       EMF is Enhanced Metafile, developed by Microsoft and is a  vector-based
       plus  bitmap  language.   Microsoft WORD, PowerPoint and probably other
       products can import this format and display it on the screen, something
       that they won’t do with EPS files that have an ASCII preview.



EPIC OPTIONS

       EPIC  is  an  enhancement to LaTeX picture drawing environment.  It was
       developed by Sunil Podar of Department of Computer Science  in  S.U.N.Y
       at Stony Brook.

       EEPIC  is  an  extension  to EPIC and LaTeX picture drawing environment
       which uses tpic specials as a graphics mechanism.  It  was  written  by
       Conrad  Kwok  of Division of Computer Science at University of Califor-
       nia, Davis.

       EEPIC-EMU is an EEPIC emulation package which does not  use  tpic  spe-
       cials.


       -A factor
              Scale  arrowheads by factor.  The width and height of arrowheads
              is divided by this factor.  This is because EPIC arrowheads  are
              normally about double the size of TeX arrowheads.


       -E num Set encoding for text translation (0 = none, 1 = ISO-8859-1, 2 =
              ISO-8859-2)


       -F     Don’t set the font face, series, and style; only set  it’s  size
              and the baselineskip. By default, fig2dev sets all 5 font param-
              eters when it puts some text. The disadvantage is that you can’t
              set  the font from your LaTeX document. With this option on, you
              can set the font from your LaTeX document (like "\sfshape \input
              picture.eepic").

              If  any of the pictures included in your LaTeX document has been
              generated with -F, then all pictures must be generated with this
              option.

              This option can be used only when fig2dev was compiled with NFSS
              defined.


       -l width
              Use "\thicklines" when width of the line is wider  than  lwidth.
              The default is 2.


       -P     Generate  a complete LaTeX file. In other words, the output file
              can be formatted without requiring any changes.  The  additional
              text  inserted  in  the  beginning and at the end of the file is
              controlled  by  the  configuration  parameter   "Preamble"   and
              "Postamble".


       -R     Allow  rotated text. Rotated text will be set using the \rotate-
              box command.  So, you will need to  include  "\usepackage{graph-
              ics}" in the preamble of your LaTeX document.

              If  this  option is not set, then rotated text will be set hori-
              zontally.



       -S scale
              Set the scale to which the  figure  is  rendered.   This  option
              automatically  sets the magnification and size to scale / 12 and
              scale respectively.


       -t stretch
              Set the stretch factor of dashed lines to sretch.   The  default
              is 30.


       -v     Include comments in the output file.


       -W     Enable  variable  line  width.  By default, only two line widths
              are available: The normal line width (hinlines), and thick lines
              (hicklines),  if  a  line  width of more than one is selected in
              xfig.


       -w     Disable variable line width. Only "\thicklines"  and/or  "\thin-
              lines" commands will be generated in the output file.

              When variable line width option is enabled, "\thinlines" command
              is still used when line width is less than LineThick. One poten-
              tial  problem is that the width of "\thinlines" is 0.4pt but the
              resolution of Fig is 1/80 inch (approx. 1pt).  If  LineThick  is
              set to 2, normal lines will be drawn in 0.4pt wide lines but the
              next line width is already 2pt. One possible solution is to  set
              LineThick  to 1 and set the width of the those lines you want to
              be drawn in "\thinlines"  to 0.

              Due to this problem, Variable line width VarWidth  is  defaulted
              to be false.




IBM-GL (HP/GL) OPTIONS

       IBM-GL  (IBM  Graphics  Language)  is  compatible  with HP-GL (Hewlett-
       Packard Graphics Language).


       -a     Select ISO A4 (ANSI A) paper size if the default is ANSI A  (ISO
              A4) paper size.


       -c     Generate  instructions for an IBM 6180 Color Plotter with (with-
              out) an IBM Graphics Enhancement Cartridge (IBM-GEC).


       -d xll,yll,xur,yur
              Restrict plotting to a rectangular area  of  the  plotter  paper
              which  has  a  lower  left  hand corner at (xll,yll) and a upper
              right hand corner at (xur,yur).  All four numbers are in  inches
              and  follow -d in a comma-sparated list - xll,yll,xur,yur - with
              no spaces between them.


       -f file
              Load text character specifications from the table in  the  fonts
              file.  The table must have 36 entries - one for each font plus a
              default.  Each entry consists of 5 numbers which specify the 1.)
              standard  character  set  (0 - 4, 6 - 9, 30 - 39), 2.) alternate
              character set (0 - 4, 6 - 9, 30 - 39), 3.) character slant angle
              (degrees),  4.)  character  width scale factor and 5.) character
              height scale factor.


       -k     Precede output with PCL command to use HP/GL


       -l pattfile
              Load area fill line patterns from  the  table  in  the  pattfile
              file.  The table must have 21 entries - one for each of the area
              fill patterns.  Each entry consists of 5 numbers  which  specify
              the  1.)  pattern  number (-1 - 6), 2.) pattern length (inches),
              3.) fill type (1 - 5), 4.) fill spacing (inches)  and  5.)  fill
              angle (degrees).


       -m mag,x0,y0
              The  magnification  may  appear  as the first element in a comma
              separated list - mag,x0,y0 - where the second and third  parame-
              ters specify an offset in inches.


       -P     Rotate  the  figure  to  portrait mode. The default is landscape
              mode.


       -p penfile
              Load plotter pen specifications from the table  in  the  penfile
              file.  The table must have 9 entries - one for each color plus a
              default.  Each entry consists of 2 numbers which specify the 1.)
              pen number (1 - 8) and 2.) pen thickness (millimeters).


       -S speed
              Set the pen speed to speed (centimeters/second).


       -v     Plot  the  figure  upside-down  in portrait mode or backwards in
              landscape mode.  This allows you to write on the top surface  of
              overhead  transparencies  without  disturbing the plotter ink on
              the bottom surface.

       Fig2dev may be installed with either ANSI A or  ISO  A4  default  paper
       size.   The  -a  option selects the alternate paper size.  Fig2dev does
       not fill closed splines.  The IBM-GEC is required to fill  other  poly-
       gons.   Fig2dev  may be installed for plotters with or without the IBM-
       GEC.  The -c option selects the alternate instruction set.



OPTIONS COMMON TO ALL BITMAP FORMATS

       -b borderwidth
              Make blank border around figure of width borderwidth.


       -F     Use correct font sizes (points) instead of the traditional  size
              that  xfig/fig2dev  uses, which is 1/80 inch.  The corresponding
              xfig command-line option is -correct_font_size.


       -g color
              Use color for the background.


       -N     Convert all colors to grayscale.


       -S smoothfactor
              This  will  smooth  the  output  by  passing   smoothfactor   to
              ghostscript   in  the  -dTextAlphaBits  and  -dGraphicsAlphaBits
              options to improve font  rendering  and  graphic  smoothing.   A
              value  of  2 for smoothfactor provides some smoothing and 4 pro-
              vides more.



GIF OPTIONS

       -t color
              Use color for the transparent color in the GIF file.  This  must
              be  specified in the same format that ppmmake(1) allows.  It may
              allow an X11 color name, but at least you may  use  a  six-digit
              hexadecimal RGBvalue using the # sign, e.g. #ff0000 (Red).



JPEG OPTIONS

       -q image_quality
              use  the integer value image_quality for the JPEG "Quality" fac-
              tor.  Valid values are 0-100, with the default being 75.




LATEX OPTIONS

       -d dmag
              Set a separate magnification for the length of  line  dashes  to
              dmag.


       -E num Set  encoding  for  latex  text translation (0 no translation, 1
              ISO-8859-1, 2 ISO-8859-2)


       -l lwidth
              Sets the threshold between LaTeX thin and thick lines to  lwidth
              pixels.   LaTeX  supports  only two different line width: \thin-
              lines and \thicklines.  Lines of width greater than lwidth  pix-
              els  are drawn as \thicklines.  Also affects the size of dots in
              dotted line style.  The default is 1.

       -v     Verbose mode.

       LaTeX cannot accurately represent all the graphics objects which can be
       described  by  Fig.   For  example, the possible slopes which lines may
       have are limited.  Some objects, such as spline curves, cannot be drawn
       at  all.  Fig2latex chooses the closest possible line slope, and prints
       error messages when objects cannot be drawn accurately



MAP (HTML image map) OPTIONS

       Xfig version 3.2.3 and later saves and allows the user to edit comments
       for  each  Fig object.  The fig2dev map output language will produce an
       HTML image map using Fig objects that  have  href="some_html_reference"
       in their comments.  Any Fig object except compound objects may used for
       this.  Usually, besides generating the map file, you would also  gener-
       ate a GIF file, which is the image to which the map refers.

       For  example,  you may have an xfig drawing with an imported image that
       has the comment href="go_here.html" and a box  object  with  a  comment
       href="go_away.html".  This will produce an image map file such the user
       may click on the image and the browser  will  load  the  "go_here.html"
       page,  or click on the box and the browser will load the "go_away.html"
       page.

       After the map file is generated by fig2dev you will need to edit it  to
       fill out any additional information it may need.

       -b borderwidth
              Make blank border around figure of width borderwidth.




METAFONT OPTIONS

       fig2dev  scales the figure by 1/8 before generating METAFONT code.  The
       magnification can be further changed with the -m option  or  by  giving
       magnification options to mf.

       In  order to process the generated METAFONT code, the mfpic macros must
       be installed where mf can find them. The mfpic macro package is  avail-
       able at any CTAN cite under the subdirectory: graphics/mfpic


       -C code
              specifies the starting METAFONT font code. The default is 32.

       -n name
              specifies the name to use in the output file.

       -p pen_magnification
              specifies  how  much the line width should be magnified compared
              to the original figure. The default is 1.

       -t top specifies the top of the whole coordinate system. The default is
              ypos.

       -x xmin
              specifies the minimum x coordinate value of the figure (inches).
              The default is 0.

       -y ymin
              specifies the minumum y coordinate value of the figure (inches).
              The default is 0.

       -X xmax
              specifies the maximum x coordinate value of the figure (inches).
              The default is 8.

       -Y ymax
              specifies the maximum y coordinate value of the figure (inches).
              The default is 8.



METAPOST OPTIONS

       -i file
              Include file content via \input-command.


       -I file
              Include file content as additional header.


       -o     Old mode (no latex).


       -p number
              Adds the line "prologues:=number" to the output.




PIC OPTIONS

       -p ext Enables  the  use  of  certain PIC extensions which are known to
              work with the groff  package;  compatibility  with  DWB  PIC  is
              unknown.  The extensions enabled by each option are:

           arc     Allow ARC_BOX i.e. use rounded corners
           line    Use the ’line_thickness’ value
           fill    Allow ellipses to be filled
           all     Use all of the above
           psfont  Don’t convert Postscript fonts generic type
                   (useful for files going to be Ditroff’ed for
                   and printed on PS printer). DWB-compatible.
           allps   Use all of the above (i.e. "all" + "psfont")



PICTEX OPTIONS

       In order to include PiCTeX pictures into a document, it is necessary to
       load the PiCTeX macros.

       PiCTeX uses TeX integer register arithmetic to generate curves, and  so
       it  is  very slow.  PiCTeX draws curves by \put-ing the psymbol repeat-
       edly, and so requires a large amount of TeX’s internal memory, and gen-
       erates  large DVI files.  The size of TeX’s memory limits the number of
       plot symbols in a picture.  As a result, it is best to  use  PiCTeX  to
       generate small pictures.


       -E num Set  encoding  for  latex  text translation (0 no translation, 1

POSTSCRIPT, ENCAPSULATED POSTSCRIPT (EPS), and PDF OPTIONS

       With PostScript, xfig can be used to create multiple page figures Spec-
       ify  the -M option to produce a multi-page output.  For posters, add -O
       to overlap the pages slightly to get around the problem of the unprint-
       able area in most printers, then cut and paste the pages together.  Due
       to memory limitations of most laser printers,  the  figure  should  not
       have large imported images (bitmaps). Great for text with very big let-
       ters.

       The EPS driver has the following differences from PostScript:
           o No showpage is generated  because  the  output  is  meant  to  be
           imported into another program or document and not printed
           o The landscape/portrait options are ignored
           o The centering option is ignored
           o The multiple-page option is ignored
           o The paper size option is ignored
           o The x/y offset options are ignored

       The EPS driver has the following two special options:

       -B Wx [Wy X0 Y0]
              This specifies that the bounding box of the EPS file should have
              the width Wx and the height Wy.  If a value less than  or  equal
              to  0  is  specified  for  Wx  or  Wy,  these  are  set  to  the
              width/height respectively of the figure. Origin is  relative  to
              screen (0,0) (upper-left).  Wx, Wy, X0 and Y0 are interpreted in
              centimeters or inches depending on the measure given in the fig-
              file.   Remember  to put either quotes (") or apostrophes (’) to
              group the arguments to -B.

       -R Wx [Wy X0 Y0]
              Same as the -B option except that X0 and Y0 is relative  to  the
              lower  left corner of the figure.  Remember to put either quotes
              (") or apostrophes (’) to group the arguments to -R.

       The PDF driver uses all the PostScript options.

       Text can now include various ISO-character codes above 0x7f,  which  is
       useful  for  language  specific characters to be printed directly.  Not
       all ISO-characters are implemented.

       Color support: Colored objects created by Fig can be printed on a color
       postscript printer. There are 32 standard colors: black, yellow, white,
       gold, five shades of blue, four shades of green, four shades  of  cyan,
       four  shades  of red, five shades of magenta, four shades of brown, and
       four shades of pink.  In addition there may be user-defined  colors  in
       the file.  See the xfig FORMAT3.2 file for the definition of these col-
       ors.  On a monochrome printer, colored objects will be mapped into dif-
       ferent grayscales by the printer.  Filled objects are printed using the
       given area fill and color.  There are 21 "shades" going from  black  to
       full  saturation of the fill color, and 21 more "tints" from full satu-
       ration + 1 to white.  In  addition,  there  are  16  patterns  such  as
       bricks, diagonal lines, crosshatch, etc.

       -A     Add an ASCII (EPSI) preview.

       -b borderwidth
              Make blank border around figure of width borderwidth.
              Not availble in EPS.


       -C dummy_arg
              Add  a  color  *binary* TIFF preview for Microsoft products that
              need a binary preview.  See also  -T  (monochrome  preview).   A
              dummy argument must be supplied for historical reasons.

       -c     option centers the figure on the page.  The centering may not be
              accurate if there are texts in the fig_file that extends too far
              to the right of other objects.

       -e     option  puts  the  figure against the edge (not centered) of the
              page.  Not availble in EPS.


       -F     Use correct font sizes (points) instead of the traditional  size
              that  xfig/fig2dev  uses, which is 1/80 inch.  The corresponding
              xfig command-line option is -correct_font_size.


       -g color
              Use color for the background.

       -l dummy_arg
              Generate figure  in  landscape  mode.   The  dummy  argument  is
              ignored, but must appear on the command line for reasons of com-
              patibility.  This option will override the orientation  specifi-
              cation in the file (for file versions 3.0 and higher).
              Not availble in EPS.

       -M     Generate multiple pages if figure exceeds paper size.
              Not availble in EPS.

       -N     Convert all colors to grayscale.


       -n name
              Set  the  Title  part of the PostScript output to name.  This is
              useful when the input to fig2dev comes from standard input.

       -O     When used with -M, overlaps the pages slightly to get around the
              problem of the unprintable area in most printers.
              Not availble in EPS.

       -p dummy_arg
              Generate  figure  in  portrait  mode.   The  dummy  argument  is
              ignored, but must appear on the command line for reasons of com-
              patibility.   This option will override the orientation specifi-
              cation in the file (for file versions 3.0 and higher).  This  is
              the default for Fig files of version 2.1 or lower.
              Not availble in EPS.


       -T     Add  a  monochrome  *binary* TIFF preview for Microsoft products
              that need a binary preview.  See also -C (color preview).


       -x offset
              shift the figure in the X direction by offset units (1/72
              inch).   A  negative  value shifts the figure to the left
              and a positive value to the right.
              Not availble in EPS.

       -y offset
              shift the figure in the Y direction by offset units (1/72
              inch).   A  negative  value  shifts  the  figure up and a
              positive value down.
              Not availble in EPS.

       -z papersize
              Sets the papersize.  Not availble in EPS.
              Available paper sizes are:
                  "Letter" (8.5" x 11" also "A"),
                  "Legal" (11" x 14")
                  "Ledger" (11" x 17"),
                  "Tabloid" (17" x 11", really Ledger in Landscape mode),
                  "A" (8.5" x 11" also "Letter"),
                  "B" (11" x 17" also "Ledger"),
                  "C" (17" x 22"),
                  "D" (22" x 34"),
                  "E" (34" x 44"),
                  "A4" (21  cm x  29.7cm),
                  "A3" (29.7cm x  42  cm),
                  "A2" (42  cm x  59.4cm),
                  "A1" (59.4cm x  84.1cm),
                  "A0" (84.1cm x 118.9cm),
                  and "B5" (18.2cm x 25.7cm).




PSTEX OPTIONS

       The pstex language is a variant of ps which suppresses formatted
       (special)  text.   The  pstex_t  language  has the complementary
       behavior: it generates only the LaTeX special text and the  com-
       mands  necessary  to  position  special text, and to overlay the
       PostScript file generated using pstex.  These two drivers can be
       used  to  generate  a  figure  which combines the flexibility of
       PostScript graphics with LaTeX text formatting of special  text.


       -F     Use  correct  font  sizes  (points) instead of the tradi-
              tional size that xfig/fig2dev uses, which is  1/80  inch.
              The  corresponding  xfig  command-line  option  is  -cor-
              rect_font_size.


       -g color
              Use color for the background.

       -n name
              sets the Title part of the  PostScript  output  to  name.
              This is useful when the input to fig2dev comes from stan-
              dard input.




PSTEX_T OPTIONS

       The pstex_t language produces only the LaTeX  special  text  and
       the  commands necessary to position special text, and to overlay
       the PostScript file generated using pstex.  (see above)


       -E num Set encoding for latex text translation  (0  no  transla-
              tion, 1 ISO-8859-1, 2 ISO-8859-2)


       -F     Don’t set the font face, series, and style; only set it’s
              size and the baselineskip. By default, fig2dev sets all 5
              font  parameters when it puts some text. The disadvantage
              is that you can’t set the font from your LaTeX  document.
              With this option on, you can set the font from your LaTeX
              document (like "\sfshape \input picture.eepic").

       -p file
              specifies the name of the PostScript file to be overlaid.
              If  not  set or its value is null then no PS file will be
              inserted.



TK and PTK OPTIONS (tcl/tk and Perl/tk)

       -l dummy_arg
              Generate figure in landscape mode.  The dummy argument is
              ignored,  but must appear on the command line for reasons
              of compatibility.  This option will override the orienta-
              tion specification in the file (for file versions 3.0 and
              higher).

       -p dummy_arg
              Generate figure in portrait mode.  The dummy argument  is
              ignored,  but must appear on the command line for reasons
              of compatibility.  This option will override the orienta-
              tion specification in the file (for file versions 3.0 and
              higher).  This is the default for Fig  files  of  version
              2.1 or lower.

       -P     Generate  canvas  of  full page size instead of using the
              bounding box of the figure’s objects. The default  is  to
              use only the bounding box.

       -z papersize
              Sets  the  papersize.   See  the  POSTSCRIPT  OPTIONS for
              available paper sizes.  This is only  used  when  the  -P
              option (use full page) is used.

BUGS and RESTRICTIONS

       Please send bug reports, fixes, new features etc. to:
       xfig-bugs@epb1.lbl.gov (Brian V. Smith)

       Arc-boxes are not supported for the tk output language, and only
       X bitmap pictures are supported because of the canvas limitation
       in tk.

       Picture objects are not scaled with the magnification factor for
       tk output.

       Because tk scales canvas items according to the X display  reso-
       lution,  polygons,  lines,  etc.  may be scaled differently than
       imported pictures (bitmaps) which aren’t scaled at all.

       Rotated text  is  only  supported  in  the  IBM-GL  (HP/GL)  and
       PostScript (including eps) languages.
