NAME
       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 pre-
       fix.   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 usu-
	      ally 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 --metafun.

       --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
