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 identi-
       fied by the suffix ".pic"; Fig files can	be specified  either  with  or
       without the suffix ".fig" .  Transfig also creates a TeX	macro file ap-
       propriate to the	target language.

OPTIONS
       The language specifier must be one of box, cgm, eepic,  eepicemu,  emf,
       epic,  eps,  ge,	 gif,  ibmgl, jpeg, latex, map,	mf, mmp, mp, pcx, pdf,
       pdftex, pdftex_t, pic, pictex, png, ppm,	 ps,  psfig,  pstex,  pstex_t,
       ptk,  sld, textyl, tiff,	tk, tpic, xbm, xpm or null.  The specifier ps-
       fig 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", re-
       spectively.  If there is	already	an existing makefile in	the directory,
       transfig	 first renames it to makefile~.	 The same holds	for any	exist-
       ing TeX macro file.  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.
