FIG2PS2TEX(1)                                                    FIG2PS2TEX(1)




NAME

       fig2ps2tex - generate a TeX file for including a PostScript file



SYNOPSIS

       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}
