NAME
       figurine	- an interactive vector	drawing	program

SYNOPSIS
       figurine	[ options ] [file...]

DESCRIPTION
       figurine	 is  an	 X11  program for the interactive generation of	vector
       graphics	in the Fig file	format used  by	 xfig(1)  (version  3.2).  The
       transfig(1)  package  is	 used to generate the final output format, see
       fig2dev(1) for details of which output formats are available.  The  Fig
       files  are  compatible  with  xfig(1) and all other programs capable of
       reading Fig 3.2 format files.

       If Fig files are	specified on the command  line,	 they  are  opened  in
       figurine.  Non-existent files on	the command line will be opened	as new
       Fig files.

OPTIONS
       The options below can be	specified as shown on the  command  line,  and
       are  also settable as X resources (see X(1) for a description of	how to
       set X resources).

       -display	display
	      Set the X	display	to be used

       -geometry geom
	      Set the geometry of the tool window e.g. -geom 400x300

       -tlcolor	color
	      Set the light color used in the toolkit widgets.

       -background color
	      Set the background color used in the toolkit widgets.

       -brcolor	color
	      Set the dark color used in the toolkit widgets.

       -handlecolor color
	      Set the color used for the object	handles.

       -font font
	      Set the font used	in the toolkit.

       -rulerfont font
	      Set the font used	in the document	rulers.

       -screenppi ppi
	      Set the screen pixels-per-inch value. This is often reported in-
	      accurately  by  the X server. Experiment with this value until a
	      screen inch is correct (use a ruler !). On my monitor, 97	is  an
	      accurate value at	1024x768.

       -undolevels val
	      Set  the	number of undo levels. The default is nine; more means
	      more flexibility,	but higher memory usage. A value of 0 disables
	      undo/redo.

       -notooltips
	      Disable the floating tool	tips.

       -nocompoundoutlines
	      Disable  the  dashed  boxes that surround	compound objects. This
	      has no effect on the actual file contents.

       -guidelines
	      Enable cross-guidelines that follow the cursor in	 the  document
	      window.

       --version
	      Display the version number on the	terminal and quit immediately.

USAGE
       The  interface  has  been designed to be	considerably more flexible and
       intuitive than xfig(1).	Switch between the types of  objects  you  can
       draw using the main tool	window icons (or use the right mouse button on
       a document window). The first icon, the Edit tool,  is  where  existing
       objects	in  a  document	are resized, rotated, and changed. For further
       details,	refer to the HTML documentation.

ENVIRONMENT
       figurine	recognises the following environment variables :

       FIGURINEDIR
	      The  directory   containing   the	  HTML	 documentation,	  e.g.
	      /usr/share/figurine

       BROWSER
	      The  browser program preferred by	the user. This is used to view
	      the HTML documentation when the menu option  Help->Contents  has
	      been  selected.  The  value must refer to	an X11 program,	but if
	      you want you could do BROWSER="xterm -e lynx" or similar.

FILES
       /usr/local/share/figurine/index.html
	      HTML documentation describing the	use of figurine.

VERSION
       This man	page is	current	for figurine-1.0.5.
