 hmm, try on ctan:

 It should be an older (3.31) but good version .

New or changed in 3.32:

workaround to cope with a change introduced since ghostscript 7.04.
Some new operators were added to ghostscript's internal array of
operators without increasing the maximum size of the array. This led
to the problem, that pstoedit couldn't add further operators.

I tried it out before reading that paragraph and I can approve: unless
you have an ancient GS, it doesn't work at all. 3.40 at least does
something even though it crashes.

 Confirm : under linux MP.tex works with pstoedit 3.33 , gs 8.51 and even 
 ESP Ghostscript 7.07;
 pstoedit 3.40 does not works correctly with gs 8.51 and 7.07

I believe that the version 3.33 works, but I can't find it anywhere.
Even 3.40 is difficult to download. Usually only some polite
bandwidth exceeded message appears. I don't know if the development
of the program is stil in progress, but they could switch to
sourceforge.

The version on CTAN is 3.31 - this is the one which doesn't work even
for simple conversions outside ConTeXt. The paragraph I posted to the
list was taken from New or changed in 3.32. This means that version
3.31 can't cope with the old GS.

pstoedit 3.40 seems to work as well. I can make conversions from
postscript to metapost outside ConTeXt without any problem. Also the
posted example with metafun trickery works somehow. It crashes the
pstoedit program, but obviously pstoedit manages to produce the proper
output before crashing.

I sent a short email to the email mentioned on the webpage - I hope
they will answer.

That's Great !!

 
 If you'd like volunteers to proofread the finished version, I'd be glad
 to help with that.

Would you plan to release a Chinese version? I am glad to be a volunteer translate for 
that.

 
 My main request is the addition of an index, but I presume that was
 already on the to-do list.
  
  the topic as how to define and use user defined functions / macros / procedure
  could have some more explanation / samples.
 
 This might indeed be helpful, if the metafun manual is intended as a
 complete guide to both metapost and metafun (replacing the old metapost
 manual).  My recollection is that the manual has very little (if any) on
 how to use suffix variables, and it would be nice to have a good
 overview of that somewhere other than the metafont (!) manual.
 
  also a suggested way as how to handle and use the definition of
  multiple (different) graphics within a single file could be helpful.
  e.g. where to put the graphics definitions. how to re-use pieces of
  graphics for other images (like axis frames).
 
 Agreed, although that's actually fairly simple (which is probably an
 argument _for_ including it, rather than against).

Hi,

try texexec --alone --make metafun

and your texexec is (as far as I can judge) far out of date.

 TeXExec 4.3 - ConTeXt / PRAGMA ADE 1997-2004

is current

that is the only authorative(spelling?) place to download... There
are mirrors, but I don't know how uptodate they are.

The output you have sent me (private mail) showed that you use the
latest ConTeXt texfiles, but the perl progam texexec was not
updated.

Did texexec --make --alone metafun work?

yep, it seems to work...it generates metafun.mem in the same directory it
was invoked...

do I have to invoke

texexec --make --alone

in a specific directory to perform correct installation of ConTeXt ?

I have not seen anything like that mentioned in install document...

is lattest version of TexExec in cont-tfm.zip ?

Hi Jose,

texexec --make --alone bypasses your distribution's way of installing
format files (fmtutil in your case I guess).

Put the resulting format files (*.fmt, *efmt, *mem) in texmf/web2c
and rerun texhash.

 I have not seen anything like that mentioned in install document...

I guess it is hidden...

 is lattest version of TexExec in cont-tfm.zip ?

Yes.

watch out: scripts are now under ../texmf*/scripts/context and no longer under ../texmf/context/ ; normally this should make no difference but ...

the problem is that that should be a writable web2c path (maybe i should extend texexec a bit) 

$TEXFORMATS=path-to-web2c 

could be set is needed (then you know for sure where things end up)
