Description

tex is a little function to save typing when including TeX commands in graphs that are used with the psfrag package in LaTeX to typeset any LaTeX text inside a postscript graphic. tex surrounds the input character string with \tex[options]{}. This is especially useful for getting Greek letters and math symbols in postscript graphs. By default tex returns a string with psfrag commands specifying that the string be centered, not rotated, and not specially enlarged or shrunk.

Usage

1
tex(string, lref='c', psref='c', scale=1, srt=0)

Arguments

string

a character string to be processed by psfrag in LaTeX.

scale

scall factor, default is 1

srt

Value
