MAG(1) FreeBSD General Commands Manual MAG(1)

mag - computes fontsizes and magsteps

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

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: 1.2n×300 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.

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`
