\title METATeX \section What is METATeX? METATeX is a set of plain TeX and METAFONT macros that you can use to define both the text and the figures in a single source file. Because METATeX sets up two way communication, from TeX to METAFONT and back from METAFONT to TeX, drawing dimensions can be controlled by TeX and labels can be located by METAFONT. Only standard features of TeX and METAFONT are used, but two runs of TeX and one of METAFONT are needed. \section How to use METATeX? Please read the TUGboat paper on METATeX to get an explanation. The paper is provided here in pdf format (mtpaper.pdf). To recreate yourself the paper, you will need the plain TUGboat style files (tugboat.cmn and tugboat.sty), in addition to the sources located in the mtpaper subdir (mtpaper.tex, delay.mf, diagram.tex, frame.tex and shadow.tex),.

METATeX – Incorporate METAFONT pictures in TeX source
METATeX is a set of plain TeX and METAFONT macros that you can use to define both the text and the figures in a single source file. Because METATeX sets up two way communication, from TeX to METAFONT and back from METAFONT to TeX, drawing dimensions can be controlled by TeX and labels can be located by METAFONT. Only standard features of TeX and METAFONT are used, but two runs of TeX and one of METAFONT are needed.
