MAKEMPX(1)                                                          MAKEMPX(1)




NAME

       makempx - typeset labels in MetaPost pictures with TeX or Troff


SYNOPSIS

       makempx [--tex|--troff] mpfile mpxfile


DESCRIPTION

       This  manual page is not meant to be exhaustive.  The complete documen-
       tation for this version of TeX can be found in the info file or  manual
       Web2C: A TeX implementation.

       If mpxfile is older than mpfile, translate the labels from the MetaPost
       input file mpfile to low-level commands in  MPXFILE,  by  running  mpto
       -tex,  tex,  and  dvitomp  by default; or, if -troff is specified, mpto
       -troff, eqn -d\$\$ | troff -Tpost, and dmp.

       The current directory is used for writing temporary files.  Errors  are
       left in mpxerr.{tex,log,dvi}.

       If  the file named in $MPTEXPRE (mptexpre.tex by default) exists, it is
       prepended to the output in tex mode.

       makempx is typically called by mpost, not from the command line.


OPTIONS

       makempx accepts the following options:

       --help Print help message and exit.

       --tex  Assume input file contains TeX commands.

       --troff
              Assume input file contains Troff commands.

       --version
