a bit more careful this time
assume a dir structure:
draw fullcircle scaled 3cm;
label(btex $A$ etex, origin);
if I go to 'sub' and run
I get the following error:
This is MetaPost, version 1.208 (kpathsea version 5.0.0)
! Unable to make mpx file.
$A$ etex, origin);
Transcript written on t1.log.
it seems the labeling feature want to create a mpx file for the included
this is a bit contrary to the way TeX handles input.
Is this a feature or a bug in mpost?
if t2.mp is moved to
and we include that instead, I get a similar error.
Any ideas as to what have changed, and how this can be fixed?
