Description: Converts xfig files into ps, eps or pdf files using LaTeX for processing text
This perl script takes into advantage the pstex and pstex_t export
formats of fig2dev (xfig) to separate special text and the rest of a xfig
file. Then, the text is processed separately using LaTeX, and
everything is put back together at the end, to make a nice wonderful
figure with the text formatted exactly the same way as the article you
are typing ! PDF output is also available.
Though gv is strictly speaking not necessary for conversion, it can
be called directly by fig2ps depending on the options you choose.
For nice PDF output, you should install Type 1 fonts, such as lmodern
or cm-super.
