This script converts MetaPost output files (with .mps file extensions )
into stand-alone (self-contained) Encapsulated PostScript files (with
all necessary fonts included.  Although MetaPost figures' final
destination are often inclusion into TeX documents, it is often useful
to view the figures during their development process.  To this end,
stand-alone EPS figures are often desired.

Usage: mpstoeps foo.mps

converts foo.mps into the stand-alone EPS foo.eps

Note: The canonical naming scheme for MetaPost output files (with source
foo.mp) is foo.1, foo.2, etc.  For philosophical reasons, this script
requires an alternative naming scheme (e.g. foo_1.mps, foo_2.mps, etc.)
so that the .mps file extension is appended to the MetaPost jobname.

MPS­toEPS – A con­ver­tor from out­put to En­cap­su­lated PostScript

This Perl script con­verts a out­put file (with file ex­ten­sion .mps) into a self-con­tained (with all fonts em­bed­ded) En­cap­su­lated PostScript file. Although graph­ics are meant to be in­cluded in a doc­u­ment, there are rea­sons to have them stand alone, e.g. de­bug­ging the graph­ics dur­ing the de­vel­op­ment pro­cesses.
