  Mlpost is an Objective Caml interface to Metapost. So it allows to
create pictures with LaTeX snippets in it. Since version 0.7 Mlpost has
a new backend which use Cairo for the drawing. We use the binding
cairo-ocaml. Thanks to Cairo, Mlpost can produce ps,pdf,png,svg...
directly now, and Mlpost pictures can be used in gtk+ window.

Thank you for this great library and that great number of backends.


Examples can be found at http://mlpost.lri.fr/examples/. They are
produced by the Metapost backend but they can be produced with the same
result with the Cairo backend.
