MAG(1)                                                                  MAG(1)



NAME
       mag - computes 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 magni-
       fications.  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'
