# [lug] Postscript question

I admit I've never tried to make a business card with LaTex or
Tex. However I believe I can answer your question. I'm going to put
this into LaTex language and not hacking the straight postscript for
now.

To put a *.ps or *.epsi into another *.ps using LaTex you need the:

\input{/riley4/pfohl/Computers/psfig}

at the beginning of the *.tex file. You can download psfix.tex from
any good LaTex site. Or from my homepage:

http://nucalf.physics.fsu.edu/pfohl/Computers/psfig.tex

This is simply the utility which allows you to do the following:

When you want to insert the *.ps or *.epsi you need to include the
lines (granted this is perhaps more complicated than you need but you
can simply easier than you can find the flags you are missing):

\begin{figure}[h]
\special{psfile=/riley4/pfohl/Diss/Figures/sing_part_ener.ps
hoffset=-90 voffset=50 hscale=80 vscale=80 angle=-90}
\vspace{6in}
\caption[Evolution of single-particle energies from the simple harmonic
oscillator to the realistic spherical shell model]{Evolution of single-particle
energies from the simple harmonic oscillator to a realistic
shell model potential with {\bf $l$}$^{2}$ and {\bf $l \cdot s$}
terms. From \cite{casten90}.}
\label{singpartener}
\end{figure}

For a business card I would guess you simply need:

\begin{figure}[h]
\special{psfile=/riley4/pfohl/Diss/Figures/sing_part_ener.ps
hoffset=-90 voffset=50 hscale=80 vscale=80 angle=-90}
\end{figure}

You'll of course need to play with the offsets, scale and angle to
make it work. IT is fairly straightforward.

If this doesn't work let me know and we'll try something else. I can
email you some *.ps documents which include *.epsi so you can see the
raw postscript if you decide to continue hacking the postscript
source.

Those who do the work and those who take the credit. He told me to
try to be in the first group; there was much less competition."
