 I have downloaded MetaPost version 0.901 and got two folders: Metapost and
 How do I add it to my old version 0.9 incorporated in Miktex?
Do I simply place the files ih the three subdirectories \base, \bin and \mem
in the corresponding
subdirectories of c:\Program Files\Miktex\doc\metapost of the old version?
 Should I refresh Miktex afterwards?
 I am quite inexperienced with computer techniques.
 I am using MikTex incorporated in WinEdt, loaded in Oct,11, 2003.
 Also, is there any documentation, or at least examples that show how to use
these macros?
