Dear Sirs

I would like to include some macros from
http://melusine.eu.org/syracuse/poulecl/macros in my luatex documents.
Every time i try to include a new example (from papier.mp, par example)
i found this old error message:;  texnum.mp Unable to make mpx file.

init_numbers(btex $-$ etex,  btexetex, btex ${\times}$10etex


The mplib core (and luatex, by extension) does not have support
for btex ... etex constructs, but I think there is special code
in context mkiv to handle such cases?




thanks, but i'm afraid that I'm not able to find the solution. Perhaps some day anybody will be able to play with syrasuse macros in luatex documents.


as the whole site is a mix of french and latex and i'm not fluent in either of them ... can you give a small example?

what happens if you don't load the mpnum package (or whatever it's called)
