NAME

       eps -  Encapsulated PostScript canvas item.

SYNOPSIS

       canvas create eps x y ?option value?...
_________________________________________________________________

DESCRIPTION

       The  eps canvas item lets you place encapsulated PostScript (EPS) on a canvas, controlling
       its size and placement.  The EPS item is displayed  either  as  a  solid  rectangle  or  a
       preview  image.   The  preview  image  is  designated  in one of two ways: 1) the EPS file
       contains an ASCII hexadecimal preview, or 2) a Tk photo image.  When the canvas  generates
       PostScript  output,  the  EPS  will be inserted with the proper translation and scaling to
       match that of the EPS item. So can use the canvas widget as a page layout tool.

EXAMPLE

       Let's say you have for PostScript files of four graphs which you want to  tile  two-by-two
       on  a  single  page.   Maybe you'd like to annotate the graphs by putting a caption at the
       bottom of each graph.

       Normally, you would have to resort to an  external  tool  or  write  your  own  PostScript
       program.   The  eps  canvas item lets you do this through Tk's canvas widget.  An eps item
       displays an image (or rectangle) representing the encapsulated PostScript file.   It  also
       scales and translates the EPS file when the canvas is printed.

SYNTAX

       canvas create eps x y ?option value?...  The eps item creates a new canvas item. Canvas is
       the name of a canvas widget.  You must supply the X-Y coordinate of the new eps item.  How
       the coordinate is exactly interpreted is controlled by the -anchor option (see below).

       Additional  options  may  be specified on the command line to configure aspects of the eps
       item such as its color, stipple, and font.  The  following  option  and  value  pairs  are
       valid.

       -anchor anchor
              Tells  how to position the EPS item relative to its X-Y coordinate.  The default is
              center.

       -background color
              Sets the background color of the EPS rectangle.

       -borderwidth pixels
              Sets the width of the 3-D border around the outside edge of the item.  The  -relief
              option determines if the border is to be drawn.  The default is 0.

       -file fileName
              Specifies  the name of the EPS file.  The first line of an EPS file must start with
              "%!PS" and contain a "EPS" version specification.  The other  requirement  is  that
              there  be  a  "%%BoundingBox:"  entry which contains four integers representing the
              lower-left and upper-right coordinates of the area bounding the EPS.   The  default
              is "".

       -font fontName
              Specifies   the   font   of   the   title.   The   default  is  *-Helvetica-Bold-R-
              Normal-*-18-180-*.

       -foreground color
              Specifies the foreground color of the EPS rectangle.  The option matters only  when
              the -stipple option is set.  The default is white.

       -height pixels
              Specifies  the height EPS item.  If pixels is 0, then the height is determined from
              the PostScript "BoundingBox:" entry in the EPS file.  The default is 0.

       -image photo
              Specifies the name of a Tk photo image to be displayed as in the item as a  preview
              image.  This option overrides any preview specification found in the EPS file.  The
              default is "".

       -justify justify
              Specifies how the title should be justified.  This  matters  only  when  the  title
              contains  more  than one line of text. Justify must be left, right, or center.  The
              default is center.

       -relief relief
              Specifies the 3-D effect for the EPS item.  Relief specifies how  the  item  should
              appear  relative  to  canvas;  for  example, raised means the item should appear to
              protrude.  The default is flat.

       -shadowcolor color
              Specifies the color of the drop shadow used for the title.   The  option  with  the
              -shadowoffset  option  control how the title's drop shadow appears.  The default is
              grey.

       -shadowoffset pixels
              Specifies the offset of the drop shadow from the title's text.  If pixels is 0,  no
              shadow will be seen.  The default is 0.

       -showimage boolean
              Indicates  whether  to  display  the  image  preview  (if  one exists), or a simple
              rectangle.  The default is yes.

       -stipple bitmap
              Specifies a bitmap to used to stipple the rectangle representing the EPS item.  The
              default is "".

       -title string
              Sets  the  title of the EPS item.  If string is "", then the title specified by the
              PostScript "Title:" entry is used.  You can  set  the  string  a  single  space  to
              display no title.  The default is "".

       -titleanchor anchor
              Tells how to position the title within EPS item.  The default is n.

       -titlecolor color
              Specifies the color of the title.  The default is white.

       -titlerotate degrees
              Sets the rotation of the title.  Degrees is a real number representing the angle of
              rotation.  The title is first rotated in space and then  placed  according  to  the
              -titleanchor position.  The default rotation is 0.0.

       -width pixels
              Specifies  the  width  EPS item.  If pixels is 0, then the width is determined from
              the PostScript "BoundingBox:" entry in the EPS file.  The default is 0.  5i.
