What is an MP file?

File used by MetaPost, a graphics-drawing language used for creating pictures in Encapsulated PostScript (.EPS) files and LaTeX documents (.TEX and .LTX files); may contain basic drawing statements or more advanced instructions for algorithmic drawing.

More Information

The MetaPost system is often used for drawing diagrams in technical documents and academic journal papers. Since supports the automatic generation of formatted images in documents, it is commonly used for graphing data results as illustrations and figures in papers.

NOTE: MetaPost is based off of the Metafont technology, which was created by Donald Knuth.
