# AFMPATH environmental variable

Yes, but I think LaTeX requires the bounding box information.

Here is how I use PS (not eps) directly in LaTeX. The first arg to
difig specifies the figure size.

\usepackage[dvips]{graphics}

\newcommand{\dofig}[2]
{\center{\scalebox{#1}{\includegraphics*{#2}}}}

\begin{figure}[t]
\dofig{0.5}{somefile.ps}
\caption{\footnotesize Insert your figure caption here}
\label{fig:figref}
\end{figure}

Agreed.
