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 magnifica-
       tions.  The fontsize of a true sized font equals the reso-
       lution 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`
