NAME

afm2tfm - convert Adobe font metrics to TeX font metrics

CONTENTS

Description

Authors

DESCRIPTION

PostScript fonts are (or should be) accompanied by font metric files such as Times-Roman.afm, which describes the characteristics of the font called Times-Roman. To use such fonts with TeX, we need TFM files that contain similar information. This program does that conversion. For more information, print out the dvips manual.

FILES

psfonts.map in the config directory used by dvips (update this).
../afm/Makefile in the dvips sources (look at this for examples).

SEE ALSO

dvips(1), tex(1), vptovf(1)

BUGS

An option to add letterspacing to the virtual font was rejected by Knuth because it would make the fi and fl ligatures break the normal rhythmic pattern.
