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 identified 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  directory,  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.
