    fig2dev

    
    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           fig2dev -L language [ -m mag ] [ -f font ] [ -s fsize ] [ other options
           ] [ fig-file [ out-file ] ]
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           Fig2dev translates fig code in the named fig-file  into  the  specified
           graphics  language and puts them in out-file.  The default fig-file and
           out-file are standard input and standard output, respectively
    
           Xfig (Facility for Interactive Generation of figures) is a  screen-ori-
           ented tool which runs under the X Window System, and allows the user to
           draw and manipulate objects interactively.  This version of fig2dev  is
           compatible with xfig versions 1.3, 1.4, 2.0, 2.1, 3.0, 3.1 and 3.2.
    
           Xfig version 3.2.3 and later saves and allows the user to edit comments
           for each Fig object.  These comments are output  with  several  of  the
           output  languages,  such  as  PostScript,  CGM,  EMF,  LaTeX, MetaFont,
           PicTeX, (as % comments), tk (as # comments), and pic (as .\" comments).
    
    
    

    GENERAL OPTIONS (all drivers)

           -L language
                  Set the output graphics language.  Valid languages are box, cgm,
                  epic, eepic, eepicemu, emf, eps, gbx (Gerber beta driver),  gif,
                  ibmgl,  jpeg,  latex,  map  (HTML  image map), mf (MetaFont), mp
                  (MetaPost), mmp (Multi-MetaPost), pcx,  pdf,  pdftex,  pdftex_t,
                  pdftex_p,  pic,  pictex,  png, ppm, ps, pstex, pstex_t, pstex_p,
                  pstricks, ptk (Perl/tk), shape (LaTeX  shaped  paragraphs),  sld
                  (AutoCad  slide  format),  svg  (beta  driver), textyl, tiff, tk
                  (tcl/tk), tpic, xbm and xpm.
    
                  Notes:
                  dvips
                   and xdvi must be compiled with the tpic  support  (-DTPIC)  for
                  epic, eepic and tpic to work.
                  You  must  have  ghostscript  and  ps2pdf,  which comes with the
                  ghostscript distribution to get the pdf output  and  the  bitmap
                  formats  (png,  jpeg, etc.), and the netpbm (pbmplus) package to
                  get gif, xbm, xpm, and sld output.
    
           -h     Print help message with all options  for  all  output  languages
                  then exit.
    
           -V     Print the program version number and exit.
    
           -D +/-rangelist
                  With  +rangelist,  keep  only  those  depths  in the list.  With
                  Set the default font used for text objects to font.  The default
                  is Roman; the format of this option depends on the graphics lan-
                  guage  in  use.  In TeX-based languages, the font is the base of
                  the name given in lfonts.tex, for instance "cmr" for  Roman,  or
                  "tt"  for teletype.  In PostScript, it is any font name known to
                  the printer or interpreter. For Gerber it has no effect.
    
           -G minor[:major][:unit]
                  Draws a grid on the page.  Specify thin, or thin and thick  line
                  spacing  in  one  of  several  units.  For example, "-G .25:1cm"
                  draws a thin, gray line every .25 cm and  a  thicker  gray  line
                  every 1 cm.  Specifying "-G 1in" draws a thin line every 1 inch.
                  Fractions may be used, e.g. "-G 1/16:1/2in"  will  draw  a  thin
                  line  every  1/16  inch (0.0625 inch) and a thick line every 1/2
                  inch.
                  Allowable units are: i, in, inch, f, ft, feet, c, cm, mm, and m.
                  Only  allowed  for  PostScript, EPS, PDF, and bitmap (GIF, JPEG,
                  etc) drivers for now.
    
           -j     Enable the I18N internationalization facility.
    
           -m mag Set the magnification at which the figure is  rendered  to  mag.
                  The  default is 1.0.  This may not be used with the maxdimension
                  option (-Z).
    
           -s size
                  Set the default font size (in points) for text objects to fsize.
                  The  default is 11*mag, and thus is scaled by the -m option.  If
                  there is no scaling, the default font is eleven point Roman."
    
           -Z maxdimension
                  Scale the figure so that the maximum dimension (width or height)
                  is  maxdimension  inches  or cm, depending on whether the figure
                  was saved with imperial or metric units.  This may not  be  used
                  with the magnification option (-m).
    
           other options
                  The  other  options  are specific to the choice of graphics lan-
                  guage, as described below.
    
    
    

    CGM OPTIONS

           CGM is Computer Graphics Metafile, developed by ISO and ANSI and  is  a
           vector-based  plus  bitmap  language.   Microsoft  WORD, PowerPoint and
           probably other products can import this format and display  it  on  the
           screen,  something that they won't do with EPS files that have an ASCII
    
    
    

    EMF OPTIONS

           EMF is Enhanced Metafile, developed by Microsoft and is a  vector-based
           plus  bitmap  language.   Microsoft WORD, PowerPoint and probably other
           products can import this format and display it on the screen, something
           that they won't do with EPS files that have an ASCII preview.
    
    
    

    EPIC OPTIONS

           EPIC  is  an  enhancement to LaTeX picture drawing environment.  It was
           developed by Sunil Podar of Department of Computer Science  in  S.U.N.Y
           at Stony Brook.
    
           EEPIC  is  an  extension  to EPIC and LaTeX picture drawing environment
           which uses tpic specials as a graphics mechanism.  It  was  written  by
           Conrad  Kwok  of Division of Computer Science at University of Califor-
           nia, Davis.
    
           EEPIC-EMU is an EEPIC emulation package which does not  use  tpic  spe-
           cials.
    
           -A factor
                  Scale  arrowheads by factor.  The width and height of arrowheads
                  is divided by this factor.  This is because EPIC arrowheads  are
                  normally about double the size of TeX arrowheads.
    
           -E num Set encoding for text translation (0 = none, 1 = ISO-8859-1, 2 =
                  ISO-8859-2)
    
           -F     Don't set the font face, series, and style; only set  it's  size
                  and the baselineskip. By default, fig2dev sets all 5 font param-
                  eters when it puts some text. The disadvantage is that you can't
                  set  the font from your LaTeX document. With this option on, you
                  can set the font from your LaTeX document (like "\sfshape \input
                  picture.eepic").
    
                  If  any of the pictures included in your LaTeX document has been
                  generated with -F, then all pictures must be generated with this
                  option.
    
                  This option can be used only when fig2dev was compiled with NFSS
                  defined.
    
           -l width
                  Use "\thicklines" when width of the line is wider  than  lwidth.
                  The default is 2.
    
    
           -S scale
                  Set  the  scale  to  which  the figure is rendered.  This option
                  automatically sets the magnification and size to scale / 12  and
                  scale respectively.
    
           -t stretch
                  Set  the  stretch factor of dashed lines to sretch.  The default
                  is 30.
    
           -v     Include comments in the output file.
    
           -W     Enable variable line width.  By default, only  two  line  widths
                  are available: The normal line width (hinlines), and thick lines
                  (hicklines), if a line width of more than  one  is  selected  in
                  xfig.
    
           -w     Disable  variable  line width. Only "\thicklines" and/or "\thin-
                  lines" commands will be generated in the output file.
    
                  When variable line width option is enabled, "\thinlines" command
                  is still used when line width is less than LineThick. One poten-
                  tial problem is that the width of "\thinlines" is 0.4pt but  the
                  resolution  of  Fig  is 1/80 inch (approx. 1pt). If LineThick is
                  set to 2, normal lines will be drawn in 0.4pt wide lines but the
                  next  line width is already 2pt. One possible solution is to set
                  LineThick to 1 and set the width of the those lines you want  to
                  be drawn in "\thinlines"  to 0.
    
                  Due  to  this problem, Variable line width VarWidth is defaulted
                  to be false.
    
    
    

    IBM-GL (HP/GL) OPTIONS

           IBM-GL (IBM Graphics  Language)  is  compatible  with  HP-GL  (Hewlett-
           Packard Graphics Language).
    
           -a     Select  ISO A4 (ANSI A) paper size if the default is ANSI A (ISO
                  A4) paper size.
    
           -c     Generate instructions for an IBM 6180 Color Plotter with  (with-
                  out) an IBM Graphics Enhancement Cartridge (IBM-GEC).
    
                  character set (0 - 4, 6 - 9, 30 - 39), 3.) character slant angle
                  (degrees), 4.) character width scale factor  and  5.)  character
                  height scale factor.
    
           -k     Precede output with PCL command to use HP/GL
    
           -l pattfile
                  Load  area  fill  line  patterns  from the table in the pattfile
                  file.  The table must have 21 entries - one for each of the area
                  fill  patterns.   Each entry consists of 5 numbers which specify
                  the 1.) pattern number (-1 - 6), 2.)  pattern  length  (inches),
                  3.)  fill  type  (1 - 5), 4.) fill spacing (inches) and 5.) fill
                  angle (degrees).
    
           -m mag,x0,y0
                  The magnification may appear as the first  element  in  a  comma
                  separated  list - mag,x0,y0 - where the second and third parame-
                  ters specify an offset in inches.
    
           -P     Rotate the figure to portrait mode.  The  default  is  landscape
                  mode.
    
           -p penfile
                  Load  plotter  pen  specifications from the table in the penfile
                  file.  The table must have 9 entries - one for each color plus a
                  default.  Each entry consists of 2 numbers which specify the 1.)
                  pen number (1 - 8) and 2.) pen thickness (millimeters).
    
           -S speed
                  Set the pen speed to speed (centimeters/second).
    
           -v     Plot the figure upside-down in portrait  mode  or  backwards  in
                  landscape  mode.  This allows you to write on the top surface of
                  overhead transparencies without disturbing the  plotter  ink  on
                  the bottom surface.
    
           Fig2dev  may  be  installed  with either ANSI A or ISO A4 default paper
           size.  The -a option selects the alternate paper  size.   Fig2dev  does
           not  fill  closed splines.  The IBM-GEC is required to fill other poly-
           gons.  Fig2dev may be installed for plotters with or without  the  IBM-
           GEC.  The -c option selects the alternate instruction set.
    
    
    

    OPTIONS COMMON TO ALL BITMAP FORMATS

           -b borderwidth
    
           -S smoothfactor
                  This   will   smooth  the  output  by  passing  smoothfactor  to
                  ghostscript  in  the  -dTextAlphaBits  and   -dGraphicsAlphaBits
                  options  to  improve  font  rendering  and graphic smoothing.  A
                  value of 2 for smoothfactor provides some smoothing and  4  pro-
                  vides more.
    
    
    

    GIF OPTIONS

           -t color
                  Use  color for the transparent color in the GIF file.  This must
                  be specified in the same format that ppmmake(1) allows.  It  may
                  allow  an  X11  color name, but at least you may use a six-digit
                  hexadecimal RGBvalue using the # sign, e.g. #ff0000 (Red).
    
    
    

    JPEG OPTIONS

           -q image_quality
                  use the integer value image_quality for the JPEG "Quality"  fac-
                  tor.  Valid values are 0-100, with the default being 75.
    
    
    

    LATEX OPTIONS

           -d dmag
                  Set  a  separate  magnification for the length of line dashes to
                  dmag.
    
           -E num Set encoding for latex text translation  (0  no  translation,  1
                  ISO-8859-1, 2 ISO-8859-2)
    
           -l lwidth
                  Sets  the threshold between LaTeX thin and thick lines to lwidth
                  pixels.  LaTeX supports only two different  line  width:  \thin-
                  lines  and \thicklines.  Lines of width greater than lwidth pix-
                  els are drawn as \thicklines.  Also affects the size of dots  in
                  dotted line style.  The default is 1.
    
           -v     Verbose mode.
    
           LaTeX cannot accurately represent all the graphics objects which can be
           described by Fig.  For example, the possible  slopes  which  lines  may
           have are limited.  Some objects, such as spline curves, cannot be drawn
           at all.  Fig2latex chooses the closest possible line slope, and  prints
           error messages when objects cannot be drawn accurately
    
    
    

    MAP (HTML image map) OPTIONS

           Xfig version 3.2.3 and later saves and allows the user to edit comments
           fill out any additional information it may need.
    
           -b borderwidth
                  Make blank border around figure of width borderwidth.
    
    
    

    METAFONT OPTIONS

           fig2dev scales the figure by 1/8 before generating METAFONT code.   The
           magnification  can  be  further changed with the -m option or by giving
           magnification options to mf.
    
           In order to process the generated METAFONT code, the mfpic macros  must
           be  installed where mf can find them. The mfpic macro package is avail-
           able at any CTAN cite under the subdirectory: graphics/mfpic
    
           -C code
                  specifies the starting METAFONT font code. The default is 32.
    
           -n name
                  specifies the name to use in the output file.
    
           -p pen_magnification
                  specifies how much the line width should be  magnified  compared
                  to the original figure. The default is 1.
    
           -t top specifies the top of the whole coordinate system. The default is
                  ypos.
    
           -x xmin
                  specifies the minimum x coordinate value of the figure (inches).
                  The default is 0.
    
           -y ymin
                  specifies the minumum y coordinate value of the figure (inches).
                  The default is 0.
    
           -X xmax
                  specifies the maximum x coordinate value of the figure (inches).
                  The default is 8.
    
           -Y ymax
                  specifies the maximum y coordinate value of the figure (inches).
                  The default is 8.
    
    
    

    METAPOST OPTIONS

           -i file
                  Include file content via \input-command.
    
                  work  with  the  groff  package;  compatibility  with DWB PIC is
                  unknown.  The extensions enabled by each option are:
    
               arc     Allow ARC_BOX i.e. use rounded corners
               line    Use the 'line_thickness' value
               fill    Allow ellipses to be filled
               all     Use all of the above
               psfont  Don't convert Postscript fonts generic type
                       (useful for files going to be Ditroff'ed for
                       and printed on PS printer). DWB-compatible.
               allps   Use all of the above (i.e. "all" + "psfont")
    
    
    

    PICTEX OPTIONS

           In order to include PiCTeX pictures into a document, it is necessary to
           load the PiCTeX macros.
    
           PiCTeX  uses TeX integer register arithmetic to generate curves, and so
           it is very slow.  PiCTeX draws curves by \put-ing the  psymbol  repeat-
           edly, and so requires a large amount of TeX's internal memory, and gen-
           erates large DVI files.  The size of TeX's memory limits the number  of
           plot  symbols  in  a picture.  As a result, it is best to use PiCTeX to
           generate small pictures.

    GBX OPTIONS (Gerber, RS-247-X)

           Typically  you  will  wish  to  set the y scale to -1.  See -g for more
           information.
    
           -d [mm|in]
                  Output dimensions should be assumed to be  millimeters  (mm)  or
                  inches (in).  The default is millimeters.
    
           -p [pos|neg]
                  Select  the  image polarity.  For positive images lines drawn in
                  the fig file will generate  lines  of  material.   For  negative
                  images  lines drawn in the fig file will result in removed mate-
                  rial.  Consider etching a chrome  on  glass  transmission  mask.
                  Drawing  lines in the fig file and choosing 'neg' will result in
                  these lines being etched through the chrome, leaving transparent
                  lines.
    
           -g <x scale>x<y scale>+<x offset>+<y offset>
                  This controls the geometry of the output, scaling the dimensions
                  as shown and applying the given offset.  Typically you will wish
                  to  set  the y scale to -1, mirroring about the x axis.  This is
                  because Gerber assumes the origin to be bottom left, while  xfig
                  selects top left.
    
    
    

    POSTSCRIPT, ENCAPSULATED POSTSCRIPT (EPS), and PDF OPTIONS

           With PostScript, xfig can be used to create multiple page figures Spec-
           ify  the -M option to produce a multi-page output.  For posters, add -O
           to overlap the pages slightly to get around the problem of the unprint-
           able area in most printers, then cut and paste the pages together.  Due
           to memory limitations of most laser printers,  the  figure  should  not
           have large imported images (bitmaps). Great for text with very big let-
           ters.
    
           The EPS driver has the following differences from PostScript:
               o No showpage is generated  because  the  output  is  meant  to  be
               imported into another program or document and not printed
               o The landscape/portrait options are ignored
               o The centering option is ignored
               o The multiple-page option is ignored
               o The paper size option is ignored
               o The x/y offset options are ignored
    
           The EPS driver has the following two special options:
    
           -B 'Wx [Wy X0 Y0]'
                  This specifies that the bounding box of the EPS file should have
                  the width Wx and the height Wy.  Note that it doesn't scale  the
                  figure  to  this  size,  it  merely sets the bounding box.  If a
                  value less than or equal to 0 is specified for Wx or  Wy,  these
                  are  set  to the width/height respectively of the figure. Origin
                  is relative to screen (0,0) (upper-left).  Wx, Wy, X0 and Y0 are
                  interpreted  in  centimeters  or inches depending on the measure
                  given in the fig-file.  Remember to put  either  quotes  (")  or
                  apostrophes (') to group the arguments to -B.
    
           -R 'Wx [Wy X0 Y0]'
                  Same  as  the -B option except that X0 and Y0 is relative to the
                  lower left corner of the figure.  Remember to put either  quotes
                  (") or apostrophes (') to group the arguments to -R.
    
           The PDF driver uses all the PostScript options.
    
           Text  can  now include various ISO-character codes above 0x7f, which is
           useful for language specific characters to be  printed  directly.   Not
           all ISO-characters are implemented.
    
           Color support: Colored objects created by Fig can be printed on a color
           postscript printer. There are 32 standard colors: black, yellow, white,
           gold,  five  shades of blue, four shades of green, four shades of cyan,
           four shades of red, five shades of magenta, four shades of  brown,  and
           four  shades  of pink.  In addition there may be user-defined colors in
           the file.  See the xfig FORMAT3.2 file for the definition of these col-
           ors.  On a monochrome printer, colored objects will be mapped into dif-
           ferent grayscales by the printer.  Filled objects are printed using the
           given  area  fill and color.  There are 21 "shades" going from black to
                  dummy argument must be supplied for historical reasons.
    
           -c     option centers the figure on the page.  The centering may not be
                  accurate if there are texts in the fig_file that extends too far
                  to the right of other objects.
    
           -e     option puts the figure against the edge (not  centered)  of  the
                  page.  Not available in EPS.
    
           -F     Use  correct font sizes (points) instead of the traditional size
                  that xfig/fig2dev uses, which is 1/80 inch.   The  corresponding
                  xfig command-line option is -correct_font_size.
    
           -g color
                  Use color for the background.
    
           -l dummy_arg
                  Generate  figure  in  landscape  mode.   The  dummy  argument is
                  ignored, but must appear on the command line for reasons of com-
                  patibility.   This option will override the orientation specifi-
                  cation in the file (for file versions 3.0 and higher).
                  Not available in EPS.
    
           -M     Generate multiple pages if figure exceeds paper size.
                  Not available in EPS.
    
           -N     Convert all colors to grayscale.
    
           -n name
                  Set the Title part of the PostScript output to  name.   This  is
                  useful when the input to fig2dev comes from standard input.
    
           -O     When used with -M, overlaps the pages slightly to get around the
                  problem of the unprintable area in most printers.
                  Not available in EPS.
    
           -p dummy_arg
                  Generate  figure  in  portrait  mode.   The  dummy  argument  is
                  ignored, but must appear on the command line for reasons of com-
                  patibility.  This option will override the orientation  specifi-
                  cation  in the file (for file versions 3.0 and higher).  This is
                  the default for Fig files of version 2.1 or lower.
                  Not available in EPS.
    
           -T     Add a monochrome *binary* TIFF preview  for  Microsoft  products
                  that need a binary preview.  See also -C (color preview).
    
                  Available paper sizes are:
                      "Letter" (8.5" x 11" also "A"),
                      "Legal" (11" x 14")
                      "Ledger" (11" x 17"),
                      "Tabloid" (17" x 11", really Ledger in Landscape mode),
                      "A" (8.5" x 11" also "Letter"),
                      "B" (11" x 17" also "Ledger"),
                      "C" (17" x 22"),
                      "D" (22" x 34"),
                      "E" (34" x 44"),
                      "A4" (21  cm x  29.7cm),
                      "A3" (29.7cm x  42  cm),
                      "A2" (42  cm x  59.4cm),
                      "A1" (59.4cm x  84.1cm),
                      "A0" (84.1cm x 118.9cm),
                      and "B5" (18.2cm x 25.7cm).
    
    
    

    PSTEX OPTIONS

           The pstex language is a variant of ps which suppresses formatted
           (special) text.  The  pstex_t  language  has  the  complementary
           behavior:  it generates only the LaTeX special text and the com-
           mands necessary to position special text,  and  to  overlay  the
           PostScript file generated using pstex.  These two drivers can be
           used to generate a figure  which  combines  the  flexibility  of
           PostScript  graphics with LaTeX text formatting of special text.
    
           -F     Use correct font sizes (points)  instead  of  the  tradi-
                  tional  size  that xfig/fig2dev uses, which is 1/80 inch.
                  The  corresponding  xfig  command-line  option  is  -cor-
                  rect_font_size.
    
           -g color
                  Use color for the background.
    
           -n name
                  sets  the  Title  part  of the PostScript output to name.
                  This is useful when the input to fig2dev comes from stan-
                  dard input.
    
    
    

    PSTEX_T OPTIONS

           The  pstex_t  language  produces only the LaTeX special text and
           the commands necessary to position special text, and to  overlay
           the PostScript file generated using pstex.  (see above)

    PSTricks OPTIONS

           The PSTricks driver provides full LaTeX text and math formatting
           for XFig drawings without overlaying separate outputs as in  the
           PSTEX  methods.  The output matches the quality of output of the
           PostScript driver except for text, where the Latex  font  selec-
           tion  mechanism  is  used as for other fig2dev LaTeX drivers. In
           addition, text is rendered black, although  font  color-changing
           LaTex  code  can  be  embedded  in  the  drawing.  The generated
           PSTricks code is meant to  be  readable.   Each  command  stands
           alone,  not  relying on global option state variables.  Thus the
           user can easily use XFig to rough out a PSTricks  drawing,  then
           finish by hand editing.
    
           To   use  the  driver's  output,  give  the  command  "\usepack-
           age{pstricks}" in your  document  preamble.   The  graphicx  and
           pstricks-add  packages may also be required.  The former is used
           for bitmap graphics and  the  second  for  complex  line  styles
           and/or  hollow  PSTricks  arrows  (with  the  -R 1 option).  The
           driver will tell you which packages are needed.  In the document
           body,  include  the  figure  with  "\input{pstfile}"  where pst-
           file.tex is the output file.  Use the XFig special flag to  have
           text  passed  as-is  to  LaTeX.   For non-special text, the same
           mechanism as the LaTeX and epic  driver  mechanism  is  used  to
           match font specs, but this is imprecise.
    
           Known bugs and limitations.
                  PSTricks  support  for  join styles is version dependent.
                  Raw postscript is inserted with "\pstVerb" for  old  ver-
                  sions  when  other  than  angle joins are needed.  The -t
                  option controls this behavior. PSTricks does not  support
                  rotated  ellipses  directly, so a rput command is emitted
                  that rotates and  locates  a  horizontal  ellipse.   This
                  makes  a problem with hatch patterns, which are moved and
                  rotated along with the ellipse.  Hatch rotation is  fixed
                  by a counter-rotation, but the origin is not adjusted, so
                  registration with adjacent hatch patterns will be  incor-
                  rect.   Flipped  bitmap graphics use an undocumented fea-
                  ture of the graphicx package: a negative height flips the
                  image  vertically.   This appears to work reliably.  How-
                  ever, you may want to flip graphics with another  program
                  before  including  them in Xfig drawings just to be sure.
                  With the -p option, the driver attempts to  convert  non-
                  EPS  pictures  to  EPS  with the TeX distribution's bmeps
                  program, but bmeps does not know  about  very  many  file
                  formats including gif.
    
           -G dummy_arg
                  Draws  a  standard  PSTricks grid in light gray, ignoring
                  \input{commands} inside  an  existing  \pspicture.   A  2
                  emits  a  complete LaTeX document.  A 3 also emits a com-
                  plete LaTeX document but attempts  to  set  the  PSTricks
                  unit to fit a 7.5 by 10 inch (portrait aspect) box.
    
           -P     Shorthand for -n 3
                   .
    
           -p dir Attempts  to  run  the bmeps program to translate picture
                  files to EPS, which is required by PSTricks.  The  trans-
                  lated  files  go  in  dir , which must already exist (the
                  driver will not create it). Moreover, (BIG  CAVEAT  HERE)
                  the  driver overwrites files with impunity in this direc-
                  tory!  Don't put your stuff  here.   The  includegraphics
                  commands  in  the  output  file  refer to this directory.
                  Even if the -p option is not used,  includegrpahics  com-
                  mands  follow  this convention with the default directory
                  ./eps .  In this case, the user must do  the  conversions
                  independently.  The bmeps program is part of the standard
                  TeX distribution. It converts the  following  formats  to
                  EPS: png jpg pnm tif.  You can see the bmeps command with
                  the -v option.
    
           -R 0|1|2
                  Sets arrow style.  With the default style 0,  Fig  arrows
                  are  converted  to lines and polygons.  With style 1, the
                  Fig arrowhead dimensions are converted to PSTricks arrow-
                  head  dimensions and PSTricks arrowhead options are emit-
                  ted.  Hollow arrows will require the  additional  package
                  pstricks-add
                   .  With  style 2, PSTricks arrowhead options are emitted
                  with no dimensions at all, and arrowhead size may be con-
                  trolled globally with psset
                   .
    
           -S scale
                  Scales  the image according to the same convention as the
                  EPIC driver, i.e., to size scale
                   /12.
    
           -t version
                  Provides the driver with PSTricks version number so  out-
                  put can match expected LaTeX input.
    
           -v     Print  verbose  warnings and extra comments in the output
                  file.  Information provided  includes  font  substitution
    
           -z 0|1|2
                  Sets font handling option.  Default option 0 attempts  to
                  honor  Fig  font  names and sizes, finding the best match
                  with a standard LaTeX font.  Option  1  sets  LaTeX  font
                  size only.  Option 2 issues no font commands at all.
    
    
    

    PSTEX_P and PDFTEX_P OPTIONS

           The  pstex_p  language has the same intention as the combination
           of pstex and pstex_t.  The only reason to use  pstex_p  is  that
           you have partially overlayed texts.  pstex_p splits the Fig file
           concerning the depths of existing texts. Because of it's  neces-
           sary  to  get the resulting size of the figure for the pdf docu-
           ment you have to specify the target document format (i.e.  using
           pstex_p rsp. pdftex_p).
           Two files results by using this language:
    
           1)  A bash script for creating and removing the necessary graph-
              ics files.  Extension: .create
    
           2) The latex code which includes all graphics files and  special
              texts. Content is put to stdout.
    
           The pstex_p driver has the following special options:
    
           -p basename
              specifies  the  basename  of the files to be created (see (1)
              above). This option is mandatory.
    
           -d dmag
              Set a separate magnification for the length of line dashes to
              dmag.
    
           -E num
              Set  encoding for latex text translation (0 no translation, 1
              ISO-8859-1, 2 ISO-8859-2)
    
           -l lwidth
              Sets the threshold between LaTeX  thin  and  thick  lines  to
              lwidth pixels.  LaTeX supports only two different line width:
              \thinlines and \thicklines.   Lines  of  width  greater  than
              lwidth  pixels  are  drawn  as \thicklines.  Also affects the
              size of dots in dotted line style.  The default is 1.
    
           -v Verbose mode.
    
           -F Don't set the font face, series, and  style;  only  set  it's
                  higher).
    
           -p dummy_arg
                  Generate  figure in portrait mode.  The dummy argument is
                  ignored, but must appear on the command line for  reasons
                  of compatibility.  This option will override the orienta-
                  tion specification in the file (for file versions 3.0 and
                  higher).   This  is  the default for Fig files of version
                  2.1 or lower.
    
           -P     Generate canvas of full page size instead  of  using  the
                  bounding  box  of the figure's objects. The default is to
                  use only the bounding box.
    
           -z papersize
                  Sets the  papersize.   See  the  POSTSCRIPT  OPTIONS  for
                  available  paper  sizes.   This  is only used when the -P
                  option (use full page) is used.

    BUGS and RESTRICTIONS

           Please send bug reports, fixes, new features etc. to:
           xfig-bugs@epb1.lbl.gov (Brian V. Smith)
    
           Arc-boxes are not supported for the tk output language, and only
           X bitmap pictures are supported because of the canvas limitation
           in tk.
    
           Picture objects are not scaled with the magnification factor for
           tk output.
    
           Because  tk scales canvas items according to the X display reso-
           lution, polygons, lines, etc. may  be  scaled  differently  than
           imported pictures (bitmaps) which aren't scaled at all.
    
           Rotated  text  is  only  supported  in  the  IBM-GL  (HP/GL) and
           PostScript (including eps) languages.
    
           In pdftex_p language fig2dev can not determine the  exact  sizes
           of  the special texts set by pdflatex afterwards. If these texts
           are bigger than expected the calculated bounding  box  might  be
           too  small so that some texts passes over the figure boundaries.
           If this happen you have to  put  an  invisible  rectangle  (line
           width 0) around the text or the entire figure.
