README file for release 0.83 of METAOBJ
Install the file inputs/metaobj.mp on your metapost path, typically under
On UNIX, you may need to run texhash or something like this, so that your
TeX installation knows about the new file.
In order to test the package, take any .mp file from the examples
directory, for instance mobjstandard.mp, and do the following:
tex mproof mobjstandard.[0-9]*
dvips mproof.dvi -o
If you run into problems, you may have to increase your metapost
environment. Try to increase first the limits you have reached.
In order to do this, create a texmf.cnf file and put the
environment variables with the new values. Recreate the metapost format
with inimpost mpost.ini, but be sure the texmf.cmf file you have
created is taken into account. (Do something like setenv TEXMFCNF .:
or export TEXMF=.: if needed.) And then compile again.
Eventually, you should be able to compile the example.
Note: the compilation of proofex.mp is very slow, be patient.
A manual is in the doc directory.
The metaobj.mp code is not formatted with mft, because mft can't
handle many of metaobj's idiosyncrasies.

metaobj – METAPOST package providing high-level objects
METAOBJ is a large METAPOST package providing high-level
objects. It implements many of PSTricks' features for node
connections, but also trees, matrices, and many other things. It
more or less contains boxes.mp and rboxes.mp. There is a large
(albeit not complete) documentation distributed with the
package. It is easily extensible with new objects.
