FIG2PS2TEX(1)		    General Commands Manual		 FIG2PS2TEX(1)

NAME
       fig2ps2tex - generate a TeX file	for including a	PostScript file

SYNOPSIS
       fig2ps2tex file

DESCRIPTION
       Fig2ps2tex  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  ap-
       proach  to  including Postscript	files in LaTeX docuements.  Fig2ps2tex
       works with plain	TeX however.

USAGE
       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

				     \input{foo}

SEE ALSO
       psfig(1), latex(1), fig2dev(1), transfig(1).
