MAG(1)                      General Commands Manual                     MAG(1)

NAME
       mag - computes TeX fontsizes and magsteps

SYNOPSIS
       mag [-Rdpi] magstep . . .

       mag [-r] [-Rdpi] fontsize . . .

DESCRIPTION
       delim  $$  This tool calculates fontsizes given magsteps.  TeXfonts are
       provided as true sized fonts or as magnifications.  The fontsize  of  a
       true  sized  font equals the resolution of the printer (ex.  300).  The
       fontsize of a font magnified $n$ magsteps equals: 1.2 sup{n} times  300
       delim  off  rounded  to  its  nearest integer value.  Fontnames for TeX
       fonts normally consists of the name (cmr), pointsize  (10),  type  (pk)
       and fontsize (360), for example: cmr10.360pk.

EXAMPLES
       The result of mag -R240 -2 0 0.5 1 will be:

            167 240 263 288

       The  inverse function is computed with the -r option. The result of mag
       -r -R240 167 240 263 288 will be the fontsteps:

            -2 0 0.5 1

       The UNIX shells allow command substitution. One can write:

            mag -r -R240 `mag -R240 -2 0 0.5 1`
