Syntax (autogenerated)

\startreusableMPgraphic{...}{...,...} ... \stopreusableMPgraphic


{...} name under which the graphic will be known


Define code for a MetaPost graphic. The graphic is compiled once, and can be reused multiple times with \reuseMPgraphic.



  fill fullcircle scaled 20pt withcolor \mycolor;

red: \reuseMPgraphic{name}

blue: \reuseMPgraphic{name}

The command is generally not very suitable for defining an overlays that must vary in width:

	fill unitsquare
		xyscaled (\overlaywidth, \overlayheight)
                % `uniformdeviate 1` produces a random number between 0 and 1
		withcolor (uniformdeviate 1, uniformdeviate 1, uniformdeviate 1);


\framed[background=beta]{narrow} ...
\framed[background=beta]{mini} ...
\framed[background=beta]{rather wide}
