Files: threeddice.mp, threeddice-doc.tex, threeddice-doc.pdf Purpose: The file threeddice.mp consists of MetaPost code to produce pictures of dice with one, two, or three faces visible. Licence: This material is subject to the LaTeX Project Public Licence. See http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/help/Catalogue/licenses.lppl.html for the details of that licence. Usage: Run mpost on threeddice.mp. If your mpost has version at least 0.9, this will produce 26 EPS files named die3d-1.mps through die3d-456.mps. If your mpost is too old the filenames will be threeddice.1 through threeddice.456. The digits indicate which faces are showing. For two digits, the first digit represents the face on top, the second represents the front face (visually below the first). For three digits, the first is the face on top, the second is the face below and left of that, and the third is below and right. These files can be included in a LaTeX document using the graphics or graphicx package, or in a plain TeX document using miniltx + graphicx, or the epsf macros. Documentation: See threeddice-doc.pdf for complete documentation. It may be regenerated by running mpost of threeddice.mp followed by running pdflatex (once) on threeddice-doc.tex. -- Dan Luecking luecking AT-SIGN uark DOT edu
