The well-known epsf macros have been updated on tug.ctan.org, and these 
changes should soon appear at your favorite mirror.

Please note the change of location.  The material has moved 
from the single file /macros/plain/contrib/misc/epsf.tex to 
the directory /macros/generic/epsf , where it has been expended to
include multiple files.

Thank you,
Jim Hefferon

Summary description: update of epsf.tex
License type: pd

Announcement text given by the package's contributor:
This update to epsf.tex fixes a bug when \epsfbox is used in the 
LaTeX {center} environment.

General information:
The epsf.tex and epsf.sty (identical) files provide for
low-level typesetting of Encapsulated PostScript (EPS)
files, with optional suppression of the figure contents (for
faster display and printing during document development),
optional figure framing, and optional figure labeling.

LaTeX users are cautioned that the graphicx package
documented in the LaTeX Graphics Companion and LaTeX
Companion (2nd ed.) books provides a much more powerful and
general facility, and allows easy switching between
pdf(la)tex and (la)tex without document modification.

Plain TeX and AmSTeX users, however, may find epsf.tex

The original location for these macros is 
http://www.math.utah.edu/pub/tex/epsf/.  They are maintained by
