Integrating the pool file (English)
MAPS 35, 2007, 9-10
keywords: luatex, metapost, string pool, programming
abstract: This short article discusses the method that is used in
Metapost and luatex to integrate the string pool file into
the program. This method allows the redistribution of a
single updated executable in place of both a program and
a data file, and this makes updating those programs easier
on both the user and the developer.

PDF / Tikz (English)
MAPS 35, 2007, 11-17
keywords: graphics language, LaTeX, ConTeXt
abstract: For those who are looking for an alternative for
external graphic drawing tools, PGF / TikZ offers a
wealth of possibilities. PGF is a macro-package that,
together with its user interface TikZ, comprises a kind
of `graphics language' to build graphics inside the text
as inline graphics or as pictures of larger size. PGF
is a macro-package originally written for LaTeX. In the
meantime it is also available for use within ConTeXt. The
package comes with a large set of libraries for different
kinds of graphics. There is extensive documentation
and a tutorial. For support a mailing list and web-site
are available. Users of the package with ConTeXt have to
install the xkeyval package version 1.8. PGF and TikZ are
distributed under the GNU Public License version 2.

Folding Sheets for a Modular Origami Dodecalendar (English)
MAPS 35, 2007, 30-36
keywords: metapost, tutorial
abstract: Twelve square sheets of paper can be folded in such a
way that they can be assembled to a pentagon dodecahedron
(origami). The single units are called modules, hence the
name modular. If the sheets bear calendrical information at
the right places, the dodecahedron shows the calendar for
each month on its faces: the dodecalendar. In this article
we let MetaPost calculate piece by piece the information
that needs to be printed on the module paper to enable us
to fold the modules and assemble the dodecahedron.
