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
--help 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
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.
