This package is used to scale up text to a desired size. Works by
deriving a new scale factor for the current font, and getting \TeX\ to
reset the text. See the commented source for usage.

Install by running \TeX\ on textfit.ins and place `textfit.sty'
where \LaTeX\ can find it.

textfit – Fit text to a desired size

Package to fit text to a given width or height by scaling the font. For example: \scaletowidth{3in}{This}. (The job is done by calculating a magstep and applying it to the current font; thus “This” will be very tall, as well as very wide; to scale in just one dimension, use the facilities of the graphicx package.)
