makempy - convert PDF or PostScript text to MetaPost graphics
makempy takes MetaPost output files (*.mpo) and
translates them to *.mpy files. In order to include text as a
graphic into a file typeset with (Con)TeX(t), you extract the text
from Postscript of PDF files using pdftops(1) and pstoedit(1),
creating a Metapost input file.
This file can then be processed by makempy. The makempy
script does its work without user intervention. When it deduces that
there are no changes, it does not do anything; otherwise it reports
its steps and any errors.
print basic usage information
don't report status messages
always process the file (no checksum test)
don't remove temporary files when finished
use pdftops(1), part of the xpdf(1) programs,
to convert PDF to PostScript
use GhostScript (see pdf2ps(1)) to convert PDF to PostScript
When set, the environment variables GS and GS_PROG will be used to
identify GHOSTSCRIPT. The names of the other programs that
are used can be set with PDFTOPS and PSTOEDIT.
