NAME

       makempy  -  Helper script for conversion of (PDF or PostScript) text to
       Metapost graphics



SYNOPSIS

       makempy filenam



DESCRIPTION

       makempy takes Metapost output files  (*.mpo)  and  translates  them  to
       *.mpy  files. In order to include text as a graphic into a file typeset
       with (Con)TeX(t), you extract the text from  Postscript  of  PDF  files
       using pdftops and pstoedit, creating a Metapost input file.

       This file can then be processed by makempy. The makempy script does its
       work without user intervention. When  it  deduces  that  there  are  no
       changes,  it  will  not  run at all, otherwise it will report its steps
       and/or encountered error.


OPTIONS

       --silent
              don t report status messages


       --force
              always process the file (no checksum test)


       --noclean
              don t remove temporary files when finished


       --acrobat
              use ACROBAT for conversion (only unix)

       identify  GHOSTSCRIPT.  If needed, the names of the other programs that
       are used can be set with PDFTOPS, ACROREAD and PSTOEDIT.
