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.

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
latex , fig2dev , transfig .
