Hi,
I defined a macro definition in metafun, and draw figures using \startbuffer[] … \stopbuffer and \processMPbuffer[].
As you see in the attached code, the same macro definition is used repeatedly by changing the numeric argument.
Is there a better way to simplify the code, for example, using \dorecurse and recurselevel?
Thank you for reading.
Best regards,
Dalyoung
