Figtex2eps: Converting xfig figures with latex to eps
Figtex2eps is a bash script for automating the process of creating postscript
images with embedded latex symbols and alike made with Xfig.
(not very fancy)
Make your figure using Xfig, ensure that all text has the "special"-flag set,
enclose LaTeX symbols and math constructs in dollar signs, and save in the
figtex2eps foo.fig and you will have
available for your document.
Consult the postscript or pdf documentation for further help and hints.
Copy the two bash scripts to some bin-directory, for example
/usr/local/bin or something alike. Make sure
they are executable by running
chmod 755 figtex2eps figtex2pdf.
- Bash (sh will also do) and some common bash utilities
- epstopdf (only figtex2pdf)
