                         The luamplib generic package.

This package allows typesetting of metapost natively in the TeX documents
thanks to the LuaTeX mplib library. It works in PDF or DVI mode, but
DVIPDFMx is the only DVI tool currently supported.

This package is developed on <http://github.com/lualatex/luamplib>.

The current maintainer is Dohyun Kim <nomosnomos@gmail.com>.


Here are the recommended installation methods (preferred first).

1. If you are using TeX Live 2008 or later, use 'tlmgr install luamplib'.
Alternatively, try your (TeX or Linux) distribution's package management system.

2. a. Grab the sources from CTAN or github.
   b. Run 'make install TEXMFDIR=/path/to/texmf'.
   c. You may need to update some filename database after, see your TeX
distribution's manual for details.

3. Try to figure it out by looking at the Makefile and comments in the sources.
