README xfig-full-3.2.6-rc.tar.xz contains the sources for the interactive drawing program xfig and its backend, fig2dev. Fig2dev is necessary to enable xfig to export figures to various output formats, such as eps, pdf, svg, windows metafile, tikz, pict2e or pstricks macro language for TeX/LaTeX, and many others. To install, untar, cd to the xfig-* and fig2dev-* directories and type in both ./configure; make; make install. INSTALL files in both directories contain a more detailed overview of the installation process. The tar files xfig-3.2.6-rc.tar.xz and fig2dev-3.2.6-rc.tar.xz contain the components separately. The most prominent new features of the releases 3.2.6 are the new export languages tikz and pict2e. For example, create a figure with xfig, use the export-button to export it to fig1.tikz. Insert "\input tikz \input fig1.tikz" into your TeX-file, or "\usepackage{pict2e} \input{fig1.tikz} into a LaTeX file. A pict2e-file can only be used with LaTeX, using "\usepackage{pict2e}" and "\input{fig1.pict2e}". Fig2dev has much more options when it is called from the command line than from the xfig export-button. For instance, fig2dev -L pict2e -P fig1.fig fig1.tex creates a stand-alone LaTeX-file. Currently, xfig seems to be the only available graphical tool to create high-quality graphics with tikz. The output from fig2dev -L tikz -P fig1.fig fig1.tex; xelatex fig1.tex is nearly identical to fig2dev -L pdf fig1.fig fig1.pdf The differences are slightly smaller lines in pattern fills in the tikz-output than in the eps or pdf output. When using the tikz or pict2e output language, postscript and tex fonts can be inserted into the same graphics. Using xelatex as the tex-engine, both eps and pdf-images can be imported. Graphics produced from the pict2e export language are also nearly identical to graphics exported to eps or pdf from xfig. However, pict2e does not support pattern fills, and for non-solid lines, each piece is drawn individually. The advantage of using the pict2e macro package is the faster compilation time with LaTeX.
