> Subject: problem with mpost number of strings exceeded
> Hi Taco,
> I am running into a problem with a metapost file which generates about 20 files,
> each being about 500kb. These files use a lot of labels (with latexmp) and eventually
> I get metapost capacity exceeded [number of strings = 31228]
> (on an old distribution). I have tried to increase max_strings to 200000, pool_size to
> more than a million, main_memory has been set to 3000000, (I changed texmf.cnf
> and regenerated the format with fmtutil), but I still get that error.
> What should I increase? In the worst case, I could split my file to generate a smaller
> number of figures.
> Thanks,
> Denis
