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.
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
set the magnification at which the figure is rendered
set the default font family
used for text objects (default "rm").
set the default font size (in
points) for text objects (default 11*mag).
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.
