Projects / fig2ps


fig2ps is a script for converting xfig files to PS or PDF, processing text using LaTeX. It is intended to help typeset good quality documents, where the font on the pictures is exactly the same as the font in the text. The advantage it has over some other xfig exporters such as eepic is that you compile the picture only once and not every time you compile your LaTeX file, giving a great gain in speed with complex pictures. It should work with LyX.
