Merci d'avoir répondu si vite !
Unfortunately, this does not seem to change anything for me, but maybe the problem lies elsewhere. This is what I am doing now:
1) invoke pdfLaTeX from inside TeXShop, which creates the file myfigs.mp
2) invoke mpost mfigs from the terminal, which creates the files myfig.n, n = 1, ..., N
3) invoke pdfLaTeX from inside TeXShop again
When the files myfig.n do not yet exist, LaTeX runs quite fast; after they have been created, a considerable amount of time is used to process the figures: The console shows `[MP
to PDF] (./myfigs.n' and pauses for several seconds before outputting `)' and continuing.
I do not quite know what to make of this.
