Scan the LaTeX prelude
Generate encapsulated postscript files
WYSIWYG mode using xpdf remote server (the name of the remote server
Be a bit more verbose. Otherwise nothing is printed except in case of error.
Use ocamlbuild to compile
Compile to native code
Pass <options> to the Ocaml compiler
Pass <options> to the compiled program
Print Mlpost version and exit
Do not parse mlpost options, do not call Metapost.dump
output dependency lines in a format suitable for the make(1) utility
compile with the specified contrib
output one name of dumpable file by line. So it print all the figures
which will be created by the .ml file.
output the libraries which are needed by the library Mlpost if you want not to use the mlpost tool :
- cmxa print the needed cmxa file (opt version)
- cma print the needed cma file (byte version)
- dir print the directories needed to be include
- file print the file name inside this directory without
Keep the compiled version of the .ml file and name it <compile-name>.
Don't execute the mlfile. So mlpost generates no figures. With this

can be used in conjunction to
create a program which generates some figures according to some command
Don't remove intermediates files. The metapost backend use some
intermediates files which are removed without this option.
Use the cairo backend instead of metapost
