I'm at one of the last frontiers of my SGML->MIF conversion: figures.
I've got everything set, except that the Frame ShapeRect has to be
sized manually in FrameMaker after conversion.  I'd like to create a
ShapeRect with the right dimensions in the conversion process.

The graphics in question are EPS, and include a %%BoundingBox
comment.  If I can parse the graphics, I could get the necessary
information, but I can't find a way to either scan the graphics
directly (which I didn't expect), or to launch an auxiliary process to
return a value (which I did).

Thanks in advance for any help.  I'll be posting the stylesheets on my
Web page as soon as I've modularized them (right now, they're
hardcoded for the O'Reilly "in a Nutshell" template).
