Make a box to hold text. This command fits with the
picture environment, although you can use it outside of there,
because rec-width and rec-height are numbers specifying
distances in terms of the
\unitlength (see picture). This
command is similar to the normal
\makebox command (see \mbox & \makebox) except here that you must specify the width and height. This
command is fragile (see \protect).
This makes a box of length 3.5 times
\unitlength and height 4
The optional argument
position specifies where in the box
the text appears. The default is to center it, both horizontally
and vertically. To place it somewhere else, use a string with one or
two of these letters.
Puts text the top of the box.
Put text at the bottom.
Put text on the left.
Put text on the right.
