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 identi-
       fied 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 one of box, cgm, eepic,  eepicemu,  emf,
       epic,  eps,  ge,  gif,  ibmgl, jpeg, latex, map, mf, mmp, mp, pcx, pdf,
       pdftex, pdftex_t, pic, pictex, png, ppm,  ps,  psfig,  pstex,  pstex_t,
       ptk,  sld,  textyl,  tiff,  tk,  tpic, xbm, xpm 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.   The  default  names  are  "Makefile" and "transfig.tex",
       respectively.  If there is already an existing makefile in  the  direc-
       tory,  transfig  first renames it to makefile~.  The same holds for any
       existing TeX macro file.  If the -I option is specified, then a command
       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.
