Metafont

MetaPost是一个程序语言和它的编译器的名字,衍生于高德纳Metafont。MetaPost擅长通过数学描述制作矢量图,生成的图片为PostScript格式。它的语法来自Metafont

实例

这个文件example.mp通过MetaPost的编译器编译(在Linux系统中使用mpost命令)之后产生了3个EPS文件: example.1, example.2, example.3。这三个文件就是右边的三张图

产生的3个eps文件可以直接用在TeX中(通过LaTeX\includegraphics命令、ConTeXt的\externalfigure命令、Plain TeX的\epsfbox命令,或者Plain pdftex中来自supp-pdf.tex\convertMPtoPDF命令。为了看或者打印这三张图片,这些引用是必须的,因为TeX的字体(Metafont)并不包含在MetaPost产生的eps文件中。
