jMetaPost(1) a patched version of MetaPost which supports Japanese


jmpost [OPTION]... [MPNAME[.mp]] [COMMANDS]
jmpost [OPTION]... &MEM ARGS


Run jMetaPost on MPNAME, usually creating MPNAME.NNN (and perhaps MPNAME.tfm), where NNN are the character numbers generated. Any remaining COMMANDS are processed as jMetaPost input, after MPNAME is read. If the first line of MPNAME is %&MEM, and MEM is an existing .mem file, use it. Else use `NAME.mem', where NAME is the program invocation name, most commonly `jmpost'.
Alternatively, if the first non-option argument begins with a backslash, interpret all non-option arguments as a line of jMetaPost input.
Alternatively, if the first non-option argument begins with a &, the next word is taken as the MEM to read, overriding all else. Any remaining arguments are processed as above.
If no arguments or options are specified, prompt for input.
