NAME

       figtoipe - Convert FIG figures into Ipe format

SYNOPSIS

       figtoipe [-g] [-p preamble] FIGfile XMLfile

DESCRIPTION

       figtoipe converts files in FIG format (as created, e.g., by xfig) to Ipe's XML format.

       figtoipe  is  not  complete.  The main lacking feature is the conversion of splines.  Arc-
       boxes are replaced by rectangles.  Feel free to improve this version!

       The drawing models of FIG and Ipe are somewhat different.   Ipe  does  not  support  depth
       ordering independent of grouping, pattern fill, and Postscript fonts.

       figtoipe  tries  to include images specified in the XFIG file. For JPEG pictures, it tries
       include the compressed image data into the XML file. For files  not  recognized  as  JPEG,
       anytopnm  is called; its output is compressed and included in the XML file. Some output of
       anytopnm might be rejected (e.g. images larger than 5000x5000 pixels or B&W  bitmaps),  or
       misunderstood.

OPTIONS

       -g group the figure in the output XML

       -c     tell ipe to crop PDF output to the boundingbox

       -6     write in ipe 6 format instead of ipe 7 format

       -p latex
              add latex as a preamble to the generated XML file, e.g.
                   ´\usepackage{amsmath}´
