figtoipe - Convert FIG figures into Ipe format


figtoipe [-g] [-p preamble] FIGfile XMLfile


figtoipe converts files in FIG format (as created, e.g., by xfig) to Ipe's XML format.

figtoipe is not complete. The main lacking feature is the conversion of splines. Arc-
boxes are replaced by rectangles. Feel free to improve this version!

The drawing models of FIG and Ipe are somewhat different. Ipe does not support depth
ordering independent of grouping, pattern fill, and Postscript fonts.

figtoipe tries to include images specified in the XFIG file. For JPEG pictures, it tries
include the compressed image data into the XML file. For files not recognized as JPEG,
anytopnm is called; its output is compressed and included in the XML file. Some output of
anytopnm might be rejected (e.g. images larger than 5000x5000 pixels or B&W bitmaps), or


-g group the figure in the output XML

-c tell ipe to crop PDF output to the boundingbox

-6 write in ipe 6 format instead of ipe 7 format

-p latex
add latex as a preamble to the generated XML file, e.g.
