Per our forum rules, all threads must have a descriptive subject text. For example, do not post questions with subjects like "Help Me!", "Urgent!!" or "Doubt". Post subjects like "Execution Problems with Cron" or "Help with Backup Shell Script".

The reason for this is that nearly 95% of all visitors to this site come here because they are referred by a search engine. In order for future searches on your post (with answers) to work well, the subject field must be something useful and related to the problem!

In addition, current forum users who are kind enough to answer questions should be able to understand the essence of your query at first glance.

So, as a benefit and courtesy to current and future knowledge seekers, please be careful with your subject text. You might receive a forum infraction if you don't pay attention to this.

Thank you.

To keep the forums high quality for all users, please take the time to format your posts correctly.

First of all, use Code Tags when you post any code or data samples so others can easily read your code. You can easily do this by highlighting your code and then clicking on the # in the editing menu. (You can also type code tags [code] and [/code] by hand.)

Second, avoid adding color or different fonts and font size to your posts. Selective use of color to highlight a single word or phrase can be useful at times, but using color, in general, makes the forums harder to read, especially bright colors like red.

Third, be careful when you cut-and-paste, edit any odd characters and make sure all links are working property.

Thank You.

mptopdf - convert MetaPost to PDF SYNOPSIS
mptopdf FILE [ ... ] DESCRIPTION
mptopdf can convert MetaPost-generated EPS files to PDF, or it can process a MetaPost source file directly (see mpost(1)) and convert the generated EPS files to PDF. OPTIONS
All switches are specified in full here but can be abbreviated to the shortest unique prefix. Thus, --metaf works the same as --metafun. --help Print a terse help message. --metafun Use the metafun pre-compiled format to process the MetaPost source file. You usually don't need this option, since metafun input is usually produced and processed as part of a texexec(1) run. Needs the --rawmp switch to take effect. --rawmp Process the source file with mpost(1) directly, rather than with texexec(1). This option is needed if you want to specify --meta- fun. --latex Typeseting labels using latex(1) rather than plain tex(1). USAGE
To convert manfig.20 to manfig-20.pdf: mptopdf manfig.20 You can convert more than one EPS file at once: mptopdf manfig.20 otherfig.17 finalfig.8 Or you can give mptopdf(1) a pattern that it will expand: mptopdf 'manfig.*' Note the single quotes to protect the * from the shell. Of course, usually you can let the shell do the wildcard expansion and therefore leave off the quotes. To convert figs.mp to figs-1.pdf, figs-2.pdf, ... mptopdf figs.mp If the labels are typeset with latex(1): mptopdf --latex figs.mp SEE ALSO
tex(1), latex(1), mpost(1), pdftex(1), texexec(1). ConTeXt wiki <http://www.contextgarden.net>. AUTHOR
mptopdf(1) is part of the ConTeXt system by Hans Hagen et al, which is available from PRAGMA ADE <http://www.pragma-ade.com/>. This man- page was written by Sanjoy Mahajan <sanjoy@mit.edu> and is in the public domain. mptopdf 1.3.2 January 2007 MPTOPDF(1)
