The package below has been updated at tug.ctan.org and should already be at your favorite mirror. Thanks, Jim Hefferon St Michael's College ====================================================================== The following information was provided by the package's contributor. Name of contribution: mfpic Author's name: Daniel Luecking Location on CTAN: /graphics/mfpic/ Summary description: Macros to generate Metafont/Metapost for drawing pictures License type: lppl Announcement text given by the package's contributor:
This is version 0.9 of mfpic. MFpic defines a command group \mfpic...\endmfpic (in LaTeX an environment, mfpic) and drawing commands to be used inside this group. When TeX (or LaTeX) is run on a file containing those commands, a Metafont (or MetaPost) source file is created. When that file is orrectly processed by Metafont (or MetaPost), and LaTeX or TeX is run again, the result is a figure in the TeX document at the location of each environment. The main new features are more flexible arrow creation macros and a few new path rendering commands: \zigzag, \sinewave and \coil. There has also been an internal reorganization to make the code a little more efficient.

mfpic – Draw /post pictures from commands

Mfpic is a scheme for producing pictures from commands. Commands \mfpic and \endmfpic (in , the mfpic environment) enclose a group in which drawing commands may be placed.

The commands generate a Meta-language file, which may be processed by (or even ). The resulting image file will be read back in to the document to place the picture at the point where the original commands appeared. Note that the ability to use here means that the package works equally well in and pdf.
