val externalimage : string -> [ `None | `Width of Num.t | `Height of Num.t | `Inside of Num.t * Num.t | `Exact of Num.t * Num.t ] -> t

insert an image given its filename - *EXPERIMENTAL*

Manipulating Commands

val nop : t

A command that has no effect

val append : t -> t -> t

Append two commands to form a compound command

val (++) : t -> t -> t

iter m n f builds a command that corresponds to the sequence of commands f m; f (m+1); ... ; f(n)

val iterl : ( 'a -> t ) -> 'a list -> t

iterl f l builds a command that corresponds to the sequence of commands f x1; f x2; ... ; f xn for l = [x1;x2;...;xn]

Positions - they are used at many places in Mlpost to indicate a direction or position.

val label : ?pos:position -> Picture.t -> Point.t -> t

label ~pos:`West pic p puts picture pic at the left of the point p

val dotlabel : ?pos:position -> Picture.t -> Point.t -> t

Works like label, but puts a dot at point p as well
