 TRANSFIG(1)                                                     TRANSFIG(1)
                        Version 3.2.3b July 19, 2000



 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 either epic, eepic, eepicemu, latex,
      pictex, ps, eps, psfig, pstex, textyl, tpic, 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 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.
