As Idris and Hans expected, Ruby was the culprit. I had installed
Ruby before downloading mswincontext.zip, as that was what I used to
do in the old days with a Miktex installation.
After following exactly these directions: http://
Scite now works on context documents.
I tried to add metapost.properties to the global with "import
metapost". I can "Build" a file, but the "Go" command does not work
because I don't have gv installed. So I opened metapost.properties
and tried changing the gv command to gsview32 (and even tried "c:
\Program Files\ghostgum\gsview\gsview32.exe"), but neither worked.
Any suggestions how I can get the "go" command to work?
Secondly, what would I do to compile a metapost file in scite
directly into PDF? I am aware of context way with processMPbuffer and
other assorted tricks, and I am aware of mptopdf, but what I am
looking for is to configure Scite to compile the metapost file and
open it in acrobat reader.
Here is the test file I am trying to compile.
