This (of course) inserts an EPS picture. To insert a PS picture, one
must first convert it to EPS with ps2epsi (comes with Ghostscript).

(Actually, there are ways to insert a PS picture directly, but they
are _not_ for the faint of heart!)


Just when you think you've made it foolproof,
someone builds a better fool!

1. Newbie: How to insert PS picture in TeX?

I'm trying to figure out how to use metapost, my sample file is :

       draw (0,0)..(1cm,1cm)..(2cm,0);

Compile it with the command :

     mpost figs

in RH5.2 with tetex-0.9-6.  The output figs.1 (a semi-circle) can be viewed in ghostview
without problem.  The only strange thing is it does not have a bounding box!
In my sample.tex :

     \input epsf

and compile it with the command:

     tex sample

which gives no error in generating sample.dvi, but the figure doesn't seem to show itself
when previewed with xdvi, only a space (like \vskip) is reserved for the figure.  I got
the same result if I use \special{psfile=figs.1}.

Please help.
