MAKEMPX(1)                                             MAKEMPX(1)

NAME
       makempx  - typeset labels in MetaPost pictures with TeX or
       Troff

SYNOPSIS
       makempx [--tex|--troff] mpfile mpxfile

DESCRIPTION
       This manual page is not meant to be exhaustive.  The  com-
       plete  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.

       --troff
