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 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
