MAKEMPX(1)                                                          MAKEMPX(1)


       makempx - typeset labels in MetaPost pictures with TeX or Troff


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


       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.


       makempx accepts the following options:

       --help Print help message and exit.

       --tex  Assume input file contains TeX commands.

              Assume input file contains Troff commands.

              Print version information and exit.
