fig2pstricks is a command-line driven application to convert a fig (or xfig) version 3.2 file to PSTricks codes.
It is especially useful to convert graphics created by R's xfig() device, but it can be used with any fig files.
When used together with LaTeX, dvips, ps2pdf, and Prosper, it can also create a PDF slide show with great ease.
What's New in This Release:
The depth of a 'compound' object is now better handled (but not perfect yet).
Text are better handled. A new commandline option --latex-symbols is introduced. If fig2pstricks is called with --latex-symbols, then texts are translated into latex symbols. Default is that the texts are copied verbatim so that any latex commands are nicely copied to pstricks. But if unusual characters (such as #, %, etc) are included in the xfig file, then the resulting latex file obtained without the '--latex-symbols' option would not compile.
ASCII code 128-255 are (almost) perfectly handled (e.g., umlauts, etc). Try with test/crazytexts.fig with and without --latex-symbols.
I do not yet understand what is going on with the 'free' function in sort_by_depth() in node.c.
