NAME

       tpic2pdftex - convert tpic \specials for use by pdftex



SYNOPSIS

       pic -t somefile.pic | tpic2pdftex > somefile.tex

       Process somefile.tex by pdftex/pdflatex.



DESCRIPTION

       Experimental awk script for conversion of tpic \specials as produced by
       (groff-)pic into pdfTeX \pdfliteral sections for further processing  by
       pdftex.



NOTES

       Current version: 1.97.

       tpic  \special  description see e. g.: Goossens, Rahtz, Mittelbach: The
       LaTeX Graphics Companion, Addison-Wesley, 1997, pp. 464.



BUGS

       Spline curve shapes not fully authentic (unknown algorithm).   Bounding
       box  does  not  care  for  line thickness (groff pic feature).  Splines
       might be outside bounding box.  Fill color does not work correctly  for
       arrowheads (pic limitation).
