mpictures – picture inclusion macros|
troff –mpictures [ options ] file ...|
Mpictures macros insert PostScript pictures into troff(1) documents.
The macros are:|
.BP source height width position offset flags label
If a PostScript file lacks page–delimiting comments, the entire
file is included. If no %%BoundingBox comment is present, the
picture is assumed to fill an 8.5×11–inch page. Nothing prevents
the picture from being placed off the page.
A picture file that can't be read by the PostScript postprocessor
is replaced by white space.|
A picture and associated text silently disappear if a diversion
trap set by .BP isn't reached. Call .EP at the end of the document
to retrieve it.|
Macros in other packages may break the adjustments made to the line length and indent when text is being placed around a picture.
A missing or improper %%BoundingBox comment may cause the frame to be filled incorrectly.
