CTAN update: mfpic
Mfpic is a package for creating pictures in (pdf)(La)TeX files, using macros that create an external Metafont or MetaPost input file. With this major update, mfpic now supports the new color models of MetaPost (cmyk and grayscale) and the new renaming feature (filenametemplate of MP version 1.0 and/or outputtemplate in 1.2).
This package is located at http://tug.ctan.org/tex-archive/graphics/mfpic/ . More information is at http://tug.ctan.org/pkg/mfpic (if the package is new it may take a day for that information to appear). We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org . Please join a users group; see http://www.tug.org/usergroups.html .
mfpic – Draw METAFONT/post pictures from (La)TeX commands
Mfpic is a scheme for producing pictures from (La)TeX commands. Commands \mfpic and \endmfpic (in LaTeX, 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 METAPOST (or even METAFONT). The resulting image file will be read back in to the document to place the picture at the point where the original (La)TeX commands appeared. Note that the ability to use METAPOST here means that the package works equally well in LaTeX and pdfLaTeX.
