Hi to all.
My name is Lorenzo but you can call me Abe.
I'm from Italy.
I'd like to learn metapost and during these days I'm searching all the
information I need about it.
I don't have questions about the code but I need a help about tecnical
use of a mp file.
I got a file like this:
Just a simple istruction, just a line.
How can I visualize this line?
I have tried with the command $ mpost file.mp
But I obtain an output like this:
abeplace:/home/abewayer# mpost prova.mp

Wath have I to do?
I've tried to convert the mp file into a ps or a pdf but can't be able.
The questions are tese:
How can I visualize the draw described into an mp file?
How can I obtain a svg from a mp one?
And a pdf?
Forgive me but I've founded not complete instructions on web.
Thanks to all
