NAME
       mag - computes fontsizes	and magsteps

SYNOPSIS
       mag [-Rdpi] magstep . . .

       mag [-r]	[-Rdpi]	fontsize . . .

DESCRIPTION
       delim  $$  This tool calculates fontsizes given magsteps.  TeXfonts are
       provided	as true	sized fonts or as magnifications.  The fontsize	 of  a
       true  sized  font equals	the resolution of the printer (ex.  300).  The
       fontsize	of a font magnified $n$	magsteps equals: 1.2 sup{n} times  300
       delim  off  rounded  to	its  nearest integer value.  Fontnames for TeX
       fonts normally consists of the name (cmr), pointsize  (10),  type  (pk)
       and fontsize (360), for example:	cmr10.360pk.

EXAMPLES
       The result of mag -R240 -2 0 0.5	1 will be:

	    167	240 263	288

       The  inverse function is	computed with the -r option. The result	of mag
       -r -R240	167 240	263 288	will be	the fontsteps:

	    -2 0 0.5 1

       The UNIX	shells allow command substitution. One can write:

	    mag	-r -R240 `mag -R240 -2 0 0.5 1`
