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 documentation 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. --troff Assume input file contains Troff commands. --version Print version information and exit.
