       fragmaster - use of psfrag constructs with pdflatex




       psfrag is a LaTeX package which allows to replace text elements in
       included EPS graphics by arbitrary LaTeX output. Because psfrag uses
       Postscript for making the replacements, in principle you can’t use
       psfrag with pdflatex which doesn’t have any interfaces to postscript.

       This package contains the Perl script fragmaster that produces a new
       EPS from your original EPS which already contains all those psfrag
       replacements. This new EPS graphic actually can be converted to PDF
       including all replacements. The resulting "encapsulated" PDF then can
       be used with pdflatex.
