This is required for aving professional latex type lettering in xfig figures.
The solution was found in this website.
I have downloaded that fig2epsi and have stored it in ~/mybin. All I have to do is: After inserting the latex stuff in the xfig figure, I save it. Then I run fig2epsi on that.
The same image used in the latex file works well.
That's all. Simple!
Bits of Learning
Learning sometimes happens in big jumps, but mostly in little tiny steps. I share my baby steps of learning here, mostly on topics around programming, programming languages, software engineering, and computing in general. But occasionally, even on other disciplines of engineering or even science. I mostly learn through examples and doing. And this place is a logbook of my experiences in learning something. You may find several things interesting here: little cute snippets of (hopefully useful) code, a bit of backing theory, and a lot of gyan on how learning can be so much fun.
